Why does NASA use Real Media?

I thought that format died 15-20 years ago.

Can anything play it now?

Iina is my new favorite media player, VLC is my back-up.

As the photographer/videographer working foe an aerospace contractor, working with the NASA bureaucracy was maddening. They would spend 80% of the cost to complete a project just to mothball it because they didn't have the extra 20% to finish it. Then next fiscal year, reactivate the program so they could complete it, thus doubling the cost and delaying it a year+. This is why Musk is doing so well.

That's why NASA uses Real Media, because that's how they have always done it.................

Because the media format is 15 years older than the web site!

RealMedia was a valid format back in '97 for distributing SouthPark episodes in 320x240 10 frames/sec. Not much else.

Real was still popular 15 years ago. I was using it to label any CD's I wanted to rip that iTunes stumbled on.
