AOL 9.0 ditches RealOne player for QuickTime

According to eWeek, the first beta version of the Windows-only AOL 9.0, which was made available to testers Tuesday, drops RealNetworks’ RealOne as its media player of choice in favor of Apple’s Quicktime. “Several long-rumored changes such as a switch from Microsoft Internet Explorer to AOL Time Warner’s own Netscape browser are not included in the current beta release. However, one notable change was the inclusion of Apple Computer’s QuickTime media player in lieu of RealNetworks’ RealOne player, which had been the technology powering AOL’s media player.”
