Does the BBC even use Real anymore?

I just realised as I was downloading real player for my old Macbook (reinstalled whilst i'm waiting for my Macbook Pro to be repaired) that the BBC doesn't seem to use real for their video, it probably uses it somewhere..

The transition to flash seems to have gone quite smoothly, in fact I'm quite surprised how well it has been carried off. I bet real isn't happy though, isn't (or wasn't) the BBC real's biggest customer?

How long until real is dead? I'm taking bets gentlemen!

    I absolutely agree. I hate Real so much more than any other video player out there. I can't wait till it's dead and never used again.

    Ironically I use RealPlayer to download the Flash videos on the BBC.

    Iplayer? Or just the general stuff? Because there's a program which allows you to download the h.264 iphone/ipod touch video versions.
