RealPlayer a real pain

Am trying to play some video on my PC but when I do I get 'RealPlayer needs to download new software to play this clip', which I do and install. When I go to play the video I get the same message and so the cycle continues. Questions. Why do I need RP to play video and why do I get the same message ad infinitum? Is there a solution or will my video never play?
