Real Player streaming video problem

Question: Real Player streaming video problem

Hi guys,

I get emails from Real all the time telling me new trailers and stuff to watch, so I clicked them and they start loading in Real Player (no. 10 btw) and when it's finished loading the audio streams perfectly, but the video is VERY slow frame rate and doesn't stream. It only picks up like every 50th frame or something and shows that.

I have a 150kbps ISDN broaband connection (and that's what was automatically detected by realplayer as my connection) I have also tried playing around with the bandwidth settings but none of it makes a difference.

Hope someone can help. I have a 2ghz speed, pentium 4 248MB ram and the broadband connection. it should stream fine...but it seems to have trouble with the video. I have all the updated drivers.

My son is getting married in LasVegas in November and his weeding will be available live from the chapel to view using Realplayer 8.Does anyone know how (if it's possible) to save the streaming video to the hard drive for later viewing or copying to cd/dvd.

Answer:Saving streaming video from real player

As far as I know you can save to hd no probs. You'll need a lot of space though. You can burn with Nero or like.BTW I hope his gardening goes ok.

This may seem like a really stupid question, and the answer may way be very obvious, but I can't do it!I am trying to save the online TV5 news in French to my hard drive so I can put it on CD and use it for teaching languages.However, the videos are only in Realone format, and I can't find a way of saving them to disk! If you Right click and click 'open in realplayer' and have the 'now playing' toolbar open, I can save the URL to a playlist, but this is no good as I still have to be connected to the internet to view the clip.I have the free version of RealOne player, if that makes a difference.The clips I have been trying to download are here:click hereThe site is all in french, so to get a video clip, click any of the links in dark blue text that say "Grand Format" or "Petit Format." The video will now open in a new window.If anyone can tell me a way to save these to my hard drive I would be very very grateful!!!Thanks in advance,Ellie

Forget Real Player and download Jetaudio from click here I use jetaudio to save streamed links and have not had any problems yet.Once it is installed it needs to be set up to read .ra .ram files. To do it open jetaudio and go to Preferences, File Type Associations, and in the right hand window select Check All, and then Update, and then OK. It will now play/record almost any file type available.

Real Player is version 10.5,
Windows Media Player is version 10,
Windows XP.

when I click a online streaming radio link, for example, mms:// . Real Player pops out and tries to play it, but Windows Media Player throws an error:

Windows Media Player cannot play the file because the specified protocol is not supported. In the Open URL dialog, try opening the file using a different transport protocol (for example, "http:" or "rtsp:").

The error code is C00D11BB, according to MS Windows solution, Tools > Options > Network, and tick all Streaming Protocols (UDP, TCP, HTTP) can solve the problem. But, it din't work at all~

I have tried reinstall Real Player and also reinstall Windows Media Player (but, Windows Media Player doesn't allow me to uninstall it), it throws the same error again.

Can someone give some advices?

Question: real player video

once again, i'm wanting to do something i know nothing about

i've searched, both here and elsewhere, for info on saving and editing real player looks possible....tho apparently you have to convert the real player files....this download lets you do that i guess

but all i really want to do is save about 10 minutes of a 90 minute webcast...and most of what i find sounds like it's for serious video folks....seems that may be because real player is so dang proprietary that there's no easy way to gain control of the data itself....

if this doesn't make a lot of sense, it because i've found out just enough to be totally confused....any help on this subject would be appreciated.

I recently purchased a nice LG Blu-Ray player with built-in wi-fi.

What I really like is that I can stream avi videos from my computer but the stream is inconsistent. Most of the time the video will begin stuttering, then gradually it will smooth out over about 10-15 minutes. (The video quality is fine.)
It's a little issue, but I was wondering if there was anything I could do to prevent this. The wi-fi is through an ATT U-verse router that I believe is 802.11G.

Any suggestions?

Answer:stuttering streaming video from Blu-Ray player

I could be wrong, one thing that comes to mind is a buffering problem. Have you tried using an application that will give you real-time bandwidth readings? That way you can see if a slowed internet connection or bandwidth loss is the culprit.

Well, you might have a corrupted video decoder for realvideo files.

So yes, check it out man.

Media player 11 will not play streaming video

I recently purchased a new Emachine with Vista Home Basic
The problem is that Media Player refuses to play some streaming
video. It simply pops open a new window with the message "page cannot be
displayed", or keeps on searching forever.

Yet files with .WVX, .WMV and .asf always seem to work

It is the .asx files that rarely works (or sometimes open an error in the player). With Windows XP, Media Player would open and play the file. Now, with Vista, it will not.
And some .htm links cannot be displayed now when the same links opened the Media Player on XP.

any ideas?

Answer:Media player will not play streaming video

Hello again

"Yet files with .WVX, .WMV and .asf always seem to work" is only true with some pages. On other they don't work at all and only display the "page cannot be displayed".

And the .htm links are links to WMA and other files that won't stream in the media Player on some pages.

Is this a proxy-related matter? I've been tampering with proxy-settings without results.

Hello! Out of the blue this past spring my Windows Media player stopped playing streaming video (it says "Ready" so I click on the play button and nothing happens. Whereupon I click it again and again as I get angrier and angrier ) So I did a system restore to the earliest date possible and then it started working again...for about a day or two. So then I would do a system restore again. Finally even that stopped working and I gave up. I tried downloading the latest version of Windows Media (11) but that made no difference. On a tip from another forum I checked "use high quality mode" under video acceleration. Then, this past Saturday, it started inexplicably working again. I was ecstatic until today, when, yup, back to non-working. Why????!!!!!

When accessing youtube and certain other videos I have no problem, but when trying to watch other windows media content over the internet (such as CBC playbacks of newscasts or streaming audio) the player pops up, and shows "ready" but when I press play it says "opening media" for about half a second and then goes back to "ready."

My search on the internet results in advice that I should open Options in the media player and click the Network tab to make adjustments to the settings.

Here's the problem. Windows Media player won't let me open the Network tab. I click it, and it won't open, hence I cannot try to solve the problem. My internet search finds a reference to a thread at Microsoft that supposedly addresses this part of the problem but the thread is no longer available.

Can anyone help with these problems? I have another computer that does not have this problem even though both computers are running Comodo firewall, and Windows XP either Home or Media editions.

In an attempt to reduce the number of processes working I disabled several a couple of months ago. I can't recall whether the problems started then.

I have tried rolling back to WMP 10--no luck. So I have reinstalled 11.


Answer:cannot access streaming video through Windows Media Player

Well I resolved the problem. I corresponded with Microsoft several times. They were very helpful, but did not actually solve the problem. They finally told me it was a firewall issue.

I use Comodo, which did not seem to make a difference whether it was working or disabled.

I finally uninstalled a program called Threatfire. The problem then went away. I do not know whether I could have tweaked it somehow but for now the problem is gone.

I wanted to post the follow up for what it is worth.

Hello all,

I recently upgradded my Windows Media player to 10.

In WMP across the top there are several tabs. The last of which is video. Clicking on this I see screen shots of videos with a link beside it that says "play video".

I assume this is free, streaming video. Is this correct?

I cannot play this.

I click on the link and the screen goes black as you would expect, very briefly then the screen goes white. The status bar says "playing" but the screen just stays white.

The progress bar moves as if I'm watching a 9 second video playing on a loop. As it does this the status bar alternates between saying "playing", then "playing playlist: Playlist 5", "clip c",

I went into the MSN Entertainment Download Troubleshooter and everything comes up fine except "Digital Rights Management Test" which comes back as unsuccessful.

I don't know if these two things are connected, but suspect they are.

All the other media I have that I previously had plays fine with no problems what so ever.

Any ideas?

Dear Anyone.

Downloaded WMP 11. It installed fine. But when I go to sites, such as, that use an embedded version of the player to stream video, I get nothing. No error message, just a screen with the Windows Media Player logo on it. I can click on it, right-click on it, no error messages, just nothing happens!

Tested some of the single-stream sites - is a multi stream site with 1000 plus stations - with VLC player and they work fine. Thing is, with VLC you can only use single streaming sites, you can't make it work on multiple sites like lordoftv. Which makes it a pain - every time you want to change stations you have to change sites, find the URL of the streaming page and manually enter it into the VLC player!

Please, anyone have any ideas why the sites don't like WMP 11? They didn't mind 9, my old version, but I haven't got that any more :-(

Again, I'm sorry I can't give you a helpful error message but I'm not getting any myself. Just.... nothing happening.

Yours puzzledly

Videos Pause Anywhere! Internet and on Computer, Streaming and Playing in Video Players..Anywhere!! HELP!!!!

No matter where I play videos they pause or freeze or go very slow..I can hear the audio but the video freezes like when it needs buffereing.

Usually in Youtube if it does that I will pause it and wait for it to load and then play it and everything goes smoothly.One day I realized that pausing and waiting wasn't working anymore. It continues to freeze and be pausey. I decided it's my video streaming and internet.

Then I tried to play a video file in Sony Vegas' Trimmer (Which usually plays everything fine) and it was still doing it. I tried Media Player Classic and the same thing. When I play videos in Windows Media Player it's just black with sound.

Hello everyone.

I was working on my pastor's son's computer on Sunday afternoon and he mentioned to me that a Baptist College which his daughters attend streams live sermons over their Web site. He said, though, that for some reason he was unable to access these sermons. I installed the latest version of Windows Media Player, but still to no avail. I also tried to play the streaming video on my computer, but I encountered the same problem. I am attaching the error message dialog because I am sometimes not the best at explaining things.

The link to the sermons is (apparently) always available on the Web site. The only thing which I could deduce is that the streaming video would only work when the sermons take place, but that if the link is clicked on at another time other than the scheduled time that this error would occur.

Could this be a possibility?

Thanks everyone for any help or advice.

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 ??

Answer:Solved: Real Player won't play ram and rmvb video files

I recently installed Windows Service Pack 2, actually three times after reinstating my computer software to the original state by erasing and reinstalling the full software install CD on my computer's hard drive for Window XP Home. I have no problems playing games with my new FX 5200 Ultra video card by BFG, but I am at random times getting the annoying green screen that blanks out my videos I am streaming or playing(happens when I am streaming more often). Then after that happens usually, the computer reboots or shuts off. I never had this happen before. My computer's memory tests ok so why can I play games with this never happening but when I am streaming or watching video through Windows Media Player, etc do I get the "green screen blankout" and then often the shutdown of my computer? I have 512 MB of system memory and 128 MB of video memory! I use System Mechanic and it shows I have at least half of my memory even during playback so what is the problem here? I can attach my system computer file of my information if you like in an e-mail if it will help. AND YES I HAVE THE DIVX CODECS. I thought about that to and uninstalled and reinstalled them with the same random problems. PLEASE HELP ME. This is really annoying.

Answer:video playback and streaming. Video card problem or software?

Well, it seems u dont have a hardware problem. this problem occurs only when u r watching videos. so i guess its the media player. take my suggestion, stop using it. Download this pack: KLite Codec Pack. I think the latest version is 3.2. Its got all the codecs u need to play compressed videos, and dvds. Its also got an advanced media player which can play any video u open it with like wmv, dat, mpg, rm, mov, avi, divx..... of course, the codecs for these formats r included in the pack.

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 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

For some reason, Real Player is now playing clips with a messed up picture. The files now play in four black and white columns, that are all pressed together. I had a similar problem before, and someone suggested Real Alternative. I tried that, it didn't work, but somehow, when I uninstalled it, it seemed to correct the problem, and Real Player began working fine. I don't know if the uninstalling actually cured the problem, but it appeared that it did. However, I'd rather not have to install and uninstall RA every time Real Player messes up, so can someone suggest a permanent solution ? And in case anyone suggests it, I'm already using the very latest version of Real Player.

Answer:Real Player problem


I am a supporter of RealOne Player. See the post below.

I suggest you completely uninstall the version you have. The Player uninstall will leave many registry entries however. I recommend you dowload jv16pt vers. 1.3 195 from here: and RegSeeker from here:

and run them both, jv16pt first. then RegSeeker. next run regedit. Start | Run type regedit, In Edit | Find enter 'realone', and click Find Next as each entry is offered for deletion and deleted. There will be four or five. make sure you recognise that are are realone. If you lack experience with editing the registry those entries can be ignored.

Goto to here:

for excellent advice on how to install RealOne Player. And finally I
recommend version 1.0 also available from the URL above (i.e. oldversion).

Hi All,
If this appears long winded then apologies in advance! I know nothing about networking and am starting to learn.
All I'm trying to do is play music files stored on my PC upstairs with my Dune Media Player downstairs which is part of my home cinema system. The Dune player is hardwired ethernet via Homeplugs and can "see" my PC and media library and the folders in there, but everything shows up as empty - photos/music etc. The Dune will "see" a netbook we have via wireless and displays the contents no problem. Netbook is running XP Home and the PC Win 7 64bit.
Initially, all worked in that the Dune player saw the Win 7 PC and libraries. I could do a slide show of photos and see the music files but couldn't play them - unsupported Codec. All my music on the PC is lossless and in WMA Lossless format to make things easier when using WMP12. However, nothing really supports this format and most devices prefer FLAC/ non Microsoft - and here's the collision. WMP12 doesn't like FLAC - even with plug ins I've tried, it's hard work.
Decided to dump WMP12, clear libraries and wipe it's database. Installed Mediamonkey version 4 instead as this will do all I want - apart from maybe photos. Have transferred some FLAC albums over to Music Library and Mediamonkey gets all artwork etc and plays them. Have enabled Mediamonkey to act as a UPNP server and it's running.

Hello,I have been running Vista 32 bit home premium and regularly used Windows Media Player to stream content from the internet. However, recently something has triggered a very weird problem that I have not been able to solve: when I attempt to stream video content from the internet, WMP no longer activates. Instead Adobe Flash Player starts, and this can hardly play wmv files without stopping every second. I have tried everything, literally, to remedy this: checking for viruses, checking for spyware, reinstalling WMP, repairing the registry, setting WMP as default player, system restore, checking settings in WMP options, changing from Internet Explorer to Firefox, uninstalling third party software, disabling add-ons, and every suggestion in the "Windows Vista and Windows Media Player" forum. And nothing has worked. When I attempted to uninstall Flash Player, the files wouldn't stream at all and a blank window opened with a link to "Get Flash Player".Then, to make matters worse, I tried to save one of the videos to my PC, and "Open with", and set WMP as default player. What happened you ask? WMP was not able to play the file and said the file may be unsupported or there may be a codec error; however, I know from before that WMP CAN PLAY THESE FILES. Before I tried this I was still able to play streaming files that were Windows Media Player-labelled links, but now if I even try to play those instead of streaming, my PC starts to download the file and won't play it at all!!!!!...
