Comment Blade Runner (Score 1) 277

This makes me wonder if those replicants in Blade Runner were just common consumer products, not really designed to fail after a few years. Is there anything man made that can function longer than we live? I'm sure there are a few rare examples, but why is it so hard to create something that outlives us?

Yes, there are codecs which should not be there. MPC - the media player in the package - was built with real's own SDK and can play realmedia files without need of any boundled codecs IF realplayer is installed on the machine. (note: I made MPC originally but have nothing to do with any codec packs)
