Downloading the free RealPlayer

These instructions will help you download the free RealPlayer.

For the free RealPlayer, go to the RealMedia Product Download Page. Click on the RealPlayer 8 Basic link shown in the image on the right.

You'll be asked to enter an e-mail address and select a country. Then select an OS (The OS is the operating system running your computer . . . for example, Windows95/98, Windows NT, Mac OS or Linux). Select your language, followed by your connection. If you're trying to do this from home, you're probably on a 28.8 or 56K modem. If you're connecting at work you could be using a T-1 or an ISDN line. Finally, click on the "Download FREE RealPlayer 8 Basic" button.

After you've downloaded and run the set-up for the RealPlayer, you'll be able to click on any of the NPR audio links and listen to that show or segment.

If you already have the RealPlayer, and are having trouble listening to our audio, try our RealAudio Help Page.

To download the RealMedia Player plus, or for other information about Real Network's RealAudio, we suggest you consult the RealMedia home page.
