Please be aware that much of the software linked to or mentioned on this forum is niche and therefore infrequently downloaded. Lots of anti-virus scanners and so-called malware detectors like to flag infrequently downloaded software as bad until it is either downloaded enough times, or its developer actually bothers with getting each individual release allow listed by every single AV vendor. You can do many people a great favor when encountering such a "problem" example by submitting them to your AV vendor for examination. For almost everything on this forum, it is a false positive.

[OFFENSIVE] brucewillis anti real rant + responses

i would like to see the compaact codec tested because its audio quality is superior to most of the other aac encoders suggested here, anyway (and "real" in particular). besides it offers some important audio preprocessing features.

oh, i forgot something... "real"    r e a l l y    sucks!

still got one comment left: this one goes out to mdmuir:

just because one particular codec ("real" in this case) is supported by an enormous amount of advertisement and commercials doesn't mean it's worth dealing with it. so in that case... forget about "real". it absofuckinglutely sucks!!!

This is absolutely no reason to leave a potentially good codec out of a listening test.

brucewillis: and you base your determination of the FhG / Coding Technologies AAC encoder quality on exactly what?  FhG is perhaps the most reputable name in audio encoding, Coding Technologies invented aacPlus / HE-AAC.

This thread is not about how much you dislike previous RealPlayers, but if you are concerned about ads... you can encode with the Real AAC encoder using a pure command line interface with Helix Producer. Or the latest RealPlayer 10 can easily be setup to never ever display the "Message Center", it takes two clicks, as well as never take over your filetypes (that's nicer than most media players). Both solutions completely free, which is more than can be said about other encoder choices included in this test. So what exactly are you then complaining about?
