Preferred Solution: How can I play Real Media content without real Player?!!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I captured an AVI file from my DVD player using my video card. My Real Player and Windows Media Player won't place this DVD clip. Someone said I need codecs.
1. what are they?
2. where to get them?
3. how to use that to convert the file to some other format?
4. what formats do Real Player and Windows Media Player support?
4a. Is there another downloadable DVD player that will play the AVI file as is?
5. I also tried to burn this AVI file using Nero but when I tried to drag the file to the proper place, I encountered problems. What could be the issue here?
6. I have been told in another forum that my CD burner can burn a DVD file on DVD media if the format is proper. What format is needed? Is this another codec issue? (Nero says it needs AVI and that is what my file is).

Good Morning,

I'm helping a friend set up their new hard drive on the laptop. They want to play music and dvd's so I loaded Real Player and Quick Time. Can't get either to play. What am I missing?

Thank you

A:Can't get media to play in Quick Time or Real Player

You need a player that will open the MPEG-2 file type:



You can also play commercial movie DVDs with Windows Media Player as long as you download the proper codecs. The K-Lite Codec Pack includes MPEG-2 and many more. However, it's easier and safer to use the above players instead. They will play just about everything.

I'm running Windows XP.

When I'm looking at cd's on Amazon and I try to play a sample of a cd it doesn't work no matter if I choose Media Player or Real Player.
Both tell me they can't play the file.

But they work if I put in a cd in the drive.

Anyone know why they wouldn't play from internet ?

I was trying to play one of my DVDs on my laptop yesterday and I got this pop up that said
"Windows Media has encountered a problem and need to close. We are sorry for the inconveniences"
I was like WTF ?? !! So I tried opening it with Real Player and got the same answer. I removed and re-installed Windows Media player but that didn't help either.

Following is the error signature after the error message:

AppName: realplay.exe AppVer: ModName: quartz.dll
ModVer: 6.5.2600.2749 Offset: 0003fa8eproblem and we need to close.

The only thing I can think of that may have contributed to this is that couple days ago, I was removing some programs via "Add or Remove programs" to clean up some disk space. I may have deleted some software/programs that have to do with being able to play movies using either Windows or Real player.

I am able to play my MP3s on Real Player and Windows Media so it definitely has to do with DVD part and that's why I'm pretty sure that I deleted something that I shouldn't have that day.

I called Dell and they ran a hardware check on my laptop just so they could say that "there was nothing wrong with your computer - it's your software and we can't help you." They kindly offered $129/hour or $239(or something like that) per year for call-service with Dell's paid technitian support ppl.

I just downloaded real player & signed up for the 14 day trial of their super pass and I'm having trouble figuring out where I can get a list of content for it. It seems to be alot of clips mostly, other than radio.

Is there a comprehensive guide out there somewhere?

An alternative for content?

What I'm thinking to do is disconnect my satellite tv service, but I want to still be able to get some things - hoping to find a source on the net for limited stuff. It's annoying - I see internet tv sites, but when I look closer at them they're trailers, video clips, international stuff, etc. Nothing that comes close to satellite tv or cable tv.

My university requires Cisco Clean Access Agent, and today the program decided I needed to update Real Player and Quicktime.

The thing is I started this computer from a clean install (DBAN, the whole nine yards), and never installed either program. I did, however install Real and Quicktime Alternative.

The tech support people here looked at my registry (which is scary in and of itself), and said there were traces of the programs there.

When I tried to play a video stream earlier, I got an error message about a missing file in my Temp Internet files. An attempt at playing an audio stream got the same response. I tried to uninstall Real Player, but for some reason that didn't work, as I got an error message about missing an uninstaller component. When I tried to reinstall it, that wouldn't work either, as when it had to uninstall Real Player, the aforemention uninstaller component error occured. I tried redownloading the latest version of Real Player, but the same error occured, and when it did install, my attempts to play streams cause AOL to crash, and it won't play regular RP files at all.

Hi: I was trying to record from a radio station a recording of someone I know who has written a music piece and by mistake I saw urge and downloaded the program. When I realized I did not want this program, I deleted it. There was a message not to do it--that it would block other users from logging onto the computer (Which is a violation of the anti-trust laws) however, I did not listen and deleted the entire program from the program files.

Dear all,

I have some RMVB videos can't play with real player. How can I do without reinstalling real player, converting?

A:Basic real player some RMVB format cannot play

Erm, what's so difficult about reinstalling a program? It would take less than 5 minutes, no?
But I guess you could convert them (but trust me, that would take a while). Have you tried installing the Real Player codec without Real Player itself?

Hi all, new here! I've seen similar problems but not any solution that has worked for me.

So here's my problem.

A few weeks ago I got a free Upgrade to VISTA CD which said it would upgrade my dell computer from XP to VISTA. During the set up wizard it said it had to remove various things (I'm not computer literate so have no idea what these were!) but that when Vista was set up it would work. Anyway, there were major issues and my computer couldn't be upgraded despite Dell saying it could.

So midway through the upgrade I had to stop and my computer was left in a state with lots of things (drives etc I guess) now deleted.

I had no choice but to do System Restore and back to how it was 2 days earlier.

All seemed ok but not running as smoothly as before. Now when i put DVDs in they won't play altogether on WMP and play with sound but black background on Real Player. I've downloaded VLC and they work on there but obviously this isn't ideal and would like to solve the problem.

Any help would be fantastic. Using WMP 11 I think.

Just updated my Windows Media Player and of course now ALL my MP3 files and movies are defaulted to Win Player.
Before, they were all defaulted to Real Audio which I prefer to use.
How can I change this default?

A:Media Player & Real Audio


Well I use another program, but if I had to choose between real player or WMP. I would choose WMP. To open in the default player open your music folder select a MP3 (click on it once). Then press shift and right click on the track a open with box will appear, select real player and tick the box that says "always use this program to open this type of file".

My friend said something about decompressing them, but I'm not sure what he meant by that.

I recently upgraded my Real player to the latest version but since then it won't play all my .ram.rm and .rmvb files . It says it needs new software but when it automatically accesses the REAL site that says that there is nothing available . My main player is VLC which I have found to be the best for reading a range of files but that also can't now read the " Real" files. Reading other peoples problems on Tech Support files I have downloaded Real Alternative which includes the Clasic Media Player . This also can't fully read the files BUT it does play the sound track . I run XP on a Dell 550 series and keep my videos on a separate Seagate external hard disc ( 1 trig - nearly full ) .

Does anyone have any thoughts ??

I saved songs from a legally owned music CD on to Real Player version

I thought I had saved them in a new play-list I created but they saved instead under the topic Music in Real Player.

I tried then right-clicking on each song and moving it to the new play-list I created but they wouldn't move to that new play-list.

Is there any way to move each song from Music to the new play-list?

Thank you kindly.

A:Real Player - Moving music files to play-list

A play list is simply a list of shortcuts pointing to the actual tracks they represent (same principle as Desktop shortcuts).

You therefore do not (and cannot) put the actual song files in the playlist location.

I am have a computer with win98se installed on it. The problem is that when I try to play stream Real Video clips, though the video is playing, I cannot hear the sound. Another thing is that I am unable to voice chat over Yahoo Messenger. When I run the Audio Setup wizard, I am getting an error message that the sound card is being used by another sound application. I am getting this message though I am not running any other sound application simultaneously. My understanding is that the Windows Media Player 6.0 which is also installed on my computer has captured the sound card and won't let it go. I have come to this conclusion because Windows Media Player is able to play all the files but not Real Audio.
Could someone help me with my problem? Can someone tell me how to make the sound card available to other programs?



A:Sound won't play in Real Player and Yahoo Voice Chat

Hiya and welcome

Windows Media Player 6.4 won't play Realplayer files, such as ram, rm and ra. You need Realplayer or an alternative for that.

Now,a s you say you're getting a conflict with the sound card, lets have a look at your IRQ's:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Hardware Resources, then IRQ's. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, lets see what you have running at startup:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Plus, doubleclick the volume icon near your clock, and choose Options | Properties. Playback. Make sure all boxes are ticked, OK. Now, make sure none are muted, or lowered, and that the balences are all in the middle.

Any pros on using Real Player and Real Player library?
I've got questions on Real Player and it's library.
1. When I play a video in my library, as soon as the video is over, it starts over, with no time to move to another one or "pause" should I be trying to burn that video.
2. I'm finding problems with the volume control. When the video starts, if I have the volume adjustment all the way to the right, maximum volume, I can move it back to the left maybe 25% of the way toward "minimum" and back to the right to maximum and this increases the volume of the video as it begins to play. If I leave the volume control on maximum then the video will play at a slightly lower volume, then if I quickly move the adjustment to the left a little and back to max. This is an issue both on wanting to listen to the videos and for burning. I do not need to spend the first 1-2 seconds of each video making volume adjustments.
3. How to move videos around on the list. Do they drag to create the desired order?
4. These are flash videos. How would I move these videos to my desktop or where ever so the format can be changed from flash to something else?
5. How to delete a video from the list.
6. Even when I am on a site like www.espn.com and there is a 20 second commercial playing, there is always an option to let Real Player download the video of the commercial. I find this option on all videos regardless of website. Who has given Real Player the right to offer t... Read more

Had a lot of trouble after installing Microsoft's DirectX 7a. Could not use DirectDraw, Direct 3D, or any media players: all would result in a page fault (Kernel32.dll @0137:bff7297c).

However, BEWARE OF DIRECTX 7a and especially WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER!~ I shout because ya need to [email protected]

Also, a .mov, although it plays in entirety, the sound is ABSOLUTELY RAUCIOUS at all volume settings.

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, both the mpg and mov play REALLY WELL in Windows Media Player.

Recently I re-installed XP(probably didn't have to, but that's another story). I finally got my internet connection back and have re-installed my audio files. When I tried to start Musicmatch, I would be prompted that currently there was no music folder. After I "clicked' yes to that, the MM music would come up for a second or 2, as would the MM logo, then everything just quit and nothing. I finally uninstalled MM and re-downloaded it. Now when I try to start it, I get nothing.

I can run my music on Win Media Player, but can't run an entire song without a prompt that Media Player has experienced a problem(of course, when you click that promt, MMP disappears). It also won't play MS format music files.

I also can't get Real One to come up - after about 5 seconds of booting up, I get a prompt that it's encountered an error.

I also can't get Quick Time to come up...I get an "error 2093 message - make sure it's installed in your system."

Again, everything ran fine before reinstalling WXP(from the D drive?). Is there some common driver or something for all these media programs that I might be missing?

refer to the instructions when installing Real Player. Although these instructions are not for the current Real Player version there is still enough in the instructions as what to disable, to keep Real Player usable, but stop it from bugging you all the time.

Hi, I listen to music all the time on my computer (its running windows xp professional).

Today, I put in a cd and I get no sound from the speakers. Everything in mediaplayer looks like the disc is playing. Likewaise, when I open a wav or mp3 file, i get no audio. I also tried the real ob eplayer, and that had the same issue. I do get audio from speakers when I test a system sound.

I clicked on the audio icon and everything is unchecked.

any ideas?
