RealNetworks is to lay off more than 90 people as the software firm reorganises its business following a disappointing second-quarter loss of $1.56m.
The company said that the cuts, which take effect immediately, affect software developers, international office staff and other areas of the company.
One of the targets is the company's struggling systems division, which provides software and services to companies wanting to broadcast over the internet.
The division has been hit hard in recent months as companies pull back on technology spending.
RealNetworks explained that it will focus on its Open Source Helix programme, a new technology platform for broadcasting audio, video and other media over the internet to computers, mobile phones and other devices.
Helix relies on making its underlying code available to outside developers and companies, which can then create applications and programs to run on top of the platform.
The company said that it will also concentrate on its consumer business, in which customers pay monthly fees for various subscriptions to exclusive music, sports, information or video games.
