Microsoft's Media Player 7 vs Real Player 8

Q: Microsoft's Media Player 7 vs Real Player 8

B)
Why do mpg files play so much better and smoother on RP8 than they do in MMP7? I don't know what it is, but whenever I play a mpg video with MMp7 I get chopy frame rates (normal and full-screen mode)and when play it with RP8 I get smooth playback...
Any thoughts on how to fix or maybe boost perfomance for MMp7?

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. Now I cannot get any music from the radio site and it has blocked real player. MSN should be sued again.HELP!!!

Hi,
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).

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).

After over 30 days of troubleshooting, we isolated the conflict to the Vision 95 which has an option of being or not being installed along with the STB Velocity (Virge VX) 3D drivers.

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

Windows MEdia Player seems to me to be programmed to seek out any and all other media players (ie. Real Player 7), and mess them up big time. I have a 465 Kb .mpg file. It used to play on Real player BEFORE i put Direct X 7a in. Now, it plays 2.4 seconds of the mpg and quits. 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.

I did a Add/Remove on Windows Media Player 6.4, and Real Player started having colored lines appearing in the video.

I did a manual uninstall of WMP (delete msdxm.ocx).

No improvement in Real Player.

Deleted Real Player, defrag/scandisk'ed, rebooted, clean install of RP 7, check out the mpg or mov: NO IMPROVEMENT.

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?

If real player and windows media player do the same thing which one is better?

A:Real Player Or Window Media Player

RealPlayer can play most of the formats that WMP can, plus some of it's own (ie formats created by the RealPlayer developer) which WMP can't play.

However, although RealPlayer plays more formats and you need it for some websites which stream audi/video content only in RealPlayer's native formats, It can be somewhat of annoyance when it's installed -- always popping up nag-screens to buy the 'pro' version etc. Something which WMP never does.

In essence, if you want all video and audio formats covered, you need them both. My policy is to manage with Windows Media Player. I just avoid using websites with video/audio content that need RealPlayer.

A:real player or window media player?

Real Player (aka Real Obnoxious) is not the same as Windows Media Player. There are certain files that will only play on Real Player and certain Files that will only play on Windows Media Player.

If you are going to install Real Player I suggest that you print out the instructions here;
http://home.comcast.net/~leeandheather/tutorials/realone.htm

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 used to play all my mp3 files via Windows Media Player. Those were the good ol' Napster days.

It seems to be doing its job and all that happy stuff, you know: opening media libraries, playing mp3 files... only: no audio. Real Player's doing fine, but even my old Napster mp3 files from Napster - heck, even the Bearshare files that work with Real Player! - get zero audio when played in Windows Media. So I figured it's some sort of conflict, you know? That stuff happens. So being the resourceful guy that I am, I tried uninstalling Real Player, (Settings, Control Panel, Add/Remove Programs...) but you know what? It's not working. I get a pop up window ("Are you absolutely SURE you wanna lose all yer Real Player stuff? Yes/No" I do "Yes", I get another pop up job ("Uninstalling Real Player") but that's it.

Welcome to TSG Kcop!

Sometimes the designer of the site will specify that it will use the WMP rather than RP. In that case there isn't much you can do about it.

If you have a program that will play on either and you want RP to be your default, then:

Left click on the file once
Press and hold the SHIFT key while right-clicking on it.

Select "Open With" from the list.
Select Real Player from the list.
Check the little box that says "always use this program" when opeing this type of file.

Hi everyone,

I noticed the volume of my music was not as loud as it was in the past when playing CD's or MP3 files with Windows Media Player 10. I had the volume turned all the way up in Media player and also in Realtek HD Audio Manager, but the sound was just not anywhere near as loud as it was before. I recently un-installed "Discover stream hub / Discover.exe" and thought that this might have had something to do with it, but that does not seem to be the case.

I decided to try to play an mp3 file with Realplayer and found that with the volume turned up in realplayer, the mp3 files sounded normal again, plenty of volume.

What surprised me is that if I close Realplayer with it's volume control turned up, then open the MP3 with Medial player, it will sound normal in media player, (plenty of volume). If I turn the volume control in Real player all the way down, close it, then play a file with Media Player, there will be no sound at all.

Somehow, the volume control for Realplayer is effecting and overriding the volume control for Media Player. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to how this might be happening ? Has anyone else ever experienced this type of thing ?

It's not a big deal now that I found out what was going on, but tracking down problems like this can drive you nuts. It seems crazy that the volume control from one program would control the other, I'm just wondering what might be going on. I'm using Windows XP Media Center Ed... Read more

A:Real Player volume control also controls Media Player Volume ?

Hi John

The reason that this happens is that when you change the volume in real player, it changes the 'Wave' volume for the whole system. I don't pretend to know too much about this but basically, real player changes part of the system volume which also affects the volume in media player. To see this for yourself, open Real Player and then go into Sounds, Speech, and Audio Devices under control panel. Click on Advanced Volume Controls under the 'See Also' heading on the left. There should be a column labelled 'Wave'. If you now change the volume in Real Player, you will see this changing also. As a result, it changes the volume system wide. Hope this solves your confusion.

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

GOM

VLC

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.

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.

With realsched.exe off, real player works flawlessly on Windows 7 Build 7100.

Yes I plan to get the new code, but it will have to wait till after this semester.

I have always known of the Realplayer add to not be that great...

May I reccomend installing the real codecs and use WMP or another great media player app like VLC?

Real Codecs: Free-Codecs.com :: Download Real Alternative 2.0.1 : Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer/RealOne Player

That package also includes Media Player Classic which is one of the best Media Players out there

Can anyone help me please? I'm using Windows Media Player ver.10 with XP Pro. Is there any way I can get it to play Real Audio Files with .ra and .rm extensions. I have uninstalled Real Player and now cannot play some 300 music files. Alternatively does anyone know of a player, other than Real Player, that will play them?
My thanks in advance.
Fredfromoz.

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: 6.0.12.1483 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 told them to get out of here and that I couldn't afford that as a grad student. (ri... Read more

The answers given in an earlier post didn't work.

I have turned off EVERY file in WMP. I went into RealPlayer and set it to be my default. I went to Start>Set Program Access and Defaults and set RealPlayer to the default.

None of these things have worked; WMP still tries (and fails, stupid POS) to open every video I want to watch.
