    RealOne Problem

    I wonder if anyone knows if it's possible to fix this. Although I try hard NOT to use it, I have RealOne 10.0 Build 6.0.12.883 installed and have a problem with "live feeds" from the web. For example, <!post=Tony's link,484976>Tony's link<!/post> in this post, when the RealOne window opens, the display flashes constantly, about every second or less. If it's possible for me to download a file and THEN view it from the hard drive, it doesn't have this problem. I still use Mozilla 1.7 but it also happens in IE 6 as well. Any ideas?

    Al,

    RealPlayer is such a drain on systems from many aspects. You might want to try Real Alternative. It is <img src=/S/free.gif border=0 alt=free width=30 height=15> and lightweight.

    Well, since I really don't normally need RealOne, I've downloaded the Alternative and will give it a try. How about this quote on their web page, Joe - does this mean the problem I pointed out in my post will not be solved?
    <hr>Supported are RealAudio (.ra .rpm), RealVideo (.rm .ram .rmvb), RealText (.rt), and ReadPix (.rp). Not fully supported are: Streaming smil files (.smi .smil) and Realmedia embedded in webpages <hr>

    I don't understand what is meant by "RealMedia embedded in web pages". Presumably a web page would include some form of link to a .RM file?

    Certainly on the BBC Radio websites you can use RealAlternative -> Media Player Classic to listen to stuff which is actually being broadcast over the airwaves (Listen Now) and to stuff that had been broadcast within the last week (Listen Again). I do both all the time (well, not simultaneously!), and my only trouble has been skipping forward in time for the Listen Again content...

    PS I note that v1.39 of Real Alternative is now out, but there seems to be little new over v1.38 previously announced in its own thread.
