Intel is favouring Microsoft rival RealNetworks in the battle for streaming video over the Web. The chip giant has licensed its Streaming Web Video technology, which optimises video streaming software for Intel's chips, to RealNetworks, although the deal is non-exclusive and Microsoft will probably follow suit so as not to be left behind. The technology sharpens video, and creates intermediate frames to make up for lost frames due to Internet packet loss. Intel has also agreed to a co-marketing deal that will promote RealNetworks to video content creators. RealNetworks' CEO Rob Glaser recently accused Microsoft of designing its Media Player so that it would cause Real's competing G2 player to crash.
