    Since WinAmp, one of the most popular Media (mostly Audio) Player don't directly support the RealMedia & QuickTime formats.
    So here are few ways to LEGALLY tweak Winamp settings for playing the popular RealMedia & QuickTime Formats in the very popular WinAmp.

    For RealMedia Formats

    Note : These methods require Real Alternative to be installed, no need of Real Player, uninstall it & install Real Alternative.
    RealAlternative LiNK

    Method#1. DSHOW Including Real Media PLUG-IN
    Open WinAmp. Now add the proper extensions to the DirectShow decoder:
    Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plugins > Input > Double Click "Nullsoft DirectShow Decoder..." > add ";RA;RM" (no quotes) to the end of the extension list.

    Note: This wouldn't work for RAM Playlist. It plays RA & RM extension files. For playing all kind of RealMedia Files follow Second Method
    --------------------------------------------------

    Method#2. Installing A Legal WinAmp Plug-in (Plays all RealMedia)
    -=-=-=Tara's Real Audio Input Plugin v1.0.3b for Winamp=-=-=-
    Tara's input plugin allows Winamp to play real audio, real video, real jukebox, mpegs, live rtsp/pnm streams, and many other formats. Successfully tested with Real Player 6/7/8/G2 on Win9x/ME/NT/2K/XP.
    Features:
    >Supports all Real audio & video formats enabling them to be played in Winamp.
    >Winamp can save Real Audio files to wav format (even RMX files).
    >If your connection is broken while playing a Real audio/video file, Tara automatically reconnects & begins from where it left off.
    > If a particular file type registered to this plugin is played for the first time (like AVI), the plugin automatically downloads the necessary codecs.
    >The files types that Winamp associates with this plugin can be changed via the tara.ini file
    >Tara now remembers the last size used for the video window.

    For QuickTime Formats

    Note : These method#1 require QT Alternative to be installed not QuickTime but if you use iTunes,etc. and can't uninstall QuickTime then use method#2.
    QTAlternative LiNK

    Method#1. DSHOW Including QuickTime PLUG-IN
    if you don't need QuickTime Player to be installed, uninstall it (assuming it was installed in the first place), install QT Alternative, and add ;MOV to Winamp's DirectShow Decoder extension list
    Preferences (Ctrl-P) > Plugins > Input > in_dshow > config. (note: latest in_qt supports qt, mov, m4v, m4p, m4b)

    --------------------------------------------------

    Method#2. If u need Quicktime & can't install QTAlternative
    use the Nullsoft in_qt.dll plugin for MOV support. Note, you may need to disable built-in vis (spectrum/beatvis) to avoid a crash.
    in_qt.dll plugin for MOV support Link....DOWNLOAD Here...... 65.6KB

    Well, this seems good, this will save more space and clutters.

    the only drawback i found when i used this is that winamp responds slowly when u start playing these files ... btw this plugin has been around for a long time

    Use VLC player and play any thing. Why bother with Tweaking.

    Nice guide dude. Hope Winamp will be fast as ever after these tweak.

    P.S: I hear somewhere that Real/QuickTime Alternative is illegal.
