You can download the newest version of Realplayer, now known as "RealOne" from the official website.

Personally, this newest upgrade caused major "lockup" problems for my computer. This could have been because I am using an older 300mhz system, but the last version "Realplayer 8" ran fine on my computer without any "lockup" issues. I wonder if their newest version is just bloated with too many unnecessary features. I have switched back to using "Realplayer 8"
You can download older versions of Realplayer here.
