RealNetworks has launched a 'universal' media player that can play its rivals' video formats.
According to the company, RealOnePlayer builds on the Helix initiative announced in July. It aims to encourage operators to broadcast in a single format that accommodates most computer users.
But the universal feature will only be available to subscribers and there are no plans yet to include it on free versions of the player.
RealNetworks also plans to launch a new radio subscription service called RadioPass, which will offer users access to thousands of internet radio stations for a monthly fee.
Microsoft is expected to launch a new version of its Windows Media Technologies software next month.
