I know this question does not belong in this group but I found this group to
be the most knowledgeable. I had RealPlayer version 8. I uninstalled and
reinstalled it. Since then I am trying to play a archive video from c-span
that will play only with the realPlayer but it won't start first The
Autoupdate comes up and starts downloading version 10.5 otherwise it does
not play.I don't want that version what can I do?

See iffn you can download the file onto your hard drive and then play
it from there. Right click the file link and then select "Save Target
As...". It's worth a shot!

Before I start with something new I would like to first stay with Real if

I use and specialized installed RP v8 also and have it well tamed and under
my control. I do not like v10 either. Anyway, what is the link of what you
are trying to play and I will check it out for you.

ps
http://www.c-span.org/watch/help.asp ..shows that they say they are starting
to use RP10 codecs and if the video you want is that way then is why it is
prompting you. I don't know if RP8 can be outfitted with that codec or one
that will play it but again if you give me a link to the video I will check
it out since I'm curious about it now too.....

My RP does the same thing as yours - it won't give me that file or any video
file in their archives unless I upgrade to v10.

My WMP v9 will not work either on their site.

I wasn't able to cop the video file either like I usually can, but I'm a bit
rusty at doing that and maybe need newer softwares for lifting streams - but
once I have the video in hand I can figure out what codecs I need.

Sounds like the answer is either upgrade or skip the link (or consider Real
Alternative, I suppose).

And unfortunately, I have a hunch this is going to be the future we are in
store for. YUK!

I can't answer that, as I don't use it. I still use the *old* version of
Real, and don't use it much at all, except on a very few sites, like
amazon.com - and NOT for video. Only audio stuff.

Okay I got the codecs and they work with those files now on RP v8, it's
pretty easy to do.

I've uploaded them for you, and so download this file
http://tinyurl.com/b8a6h and unzip it and place the 2 codecs
in your real player codec folder which is located in:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Real\Codecs

That's it ..enjoy

Hye Rick, how did you find these special codecs or DLLs, anyway? Is it a
combination of a somewhat intricate knowledge of the older Real Player's
limitations and requirements, mixed in with a good dose of persistence, or
what?? (or is it a secret?) :-)

oh ps,

....besides those dll's making your RP v8 work with those files watching
online now, I also downloaded and installed this separate simple Free program
that lets you take that link and also actually download those rm video files
to your own computer and have your own copy of it if you wanted - the program
is called Net Transport: Second listing down on this page:
http://www.321download.com/LastFreeware/page9.html#Net%...
It is simple to use, a small footprint of an install... works very well.

It's not a secret really and they are not special but were just taken
from RP v10 was all. Nice codecs though!

I surmise when Solkeys uninstalled it the first time which he said had worked
with that video but the uninstall removed them, so evidently in order to
have had those dll's already he must of been previously last year or so
prompted for codecs and 'at that time' Real gave it to him.. but since then
now they don't service the old versions and make you upgrade to v10 instead
of giving you the codecs - which he what he ran into with the new prompt.

I know there's so many alternate versions like RP alternative, QT
alternative, or MP classic, K-Lite Codec Packs and lot's of ways to make it
work, and other 'all in one' players - I like them all ..but for me I just
enjoy keeping all my selected versions of WMP 6.4 & 9, RP8, QT, DivX, players
'Stock' but fully codec'd w/other unique changes. This way when
someone has a particular problem with a particular version I can help and
troubleshoot each brand better; actually I was surprised I did not have those
RP codecs already on my RP version but lately I haven't had time to keep up
with my players like I used to do.

Well the good thing is that I was able to once again expand my v8 with more
stock codecs, as well this Net Transport program is a really neat addition to
my system and is very similar to StreamBox VCR suite but which was not able
to cop these newer rp streams. I don't like to watch them online either and
so tis the only other way to get em.

I have Total Recorder, which (I think) does something similar to those
programs you're mentioning above(?), except that Total Recorder also lets
you record and save them as mp3s, instead of wav or rm, or whatever, which,
I think, is a distinct advantage.

OTOH, those programs you mentioned above are probably more flexible in some
other ways, I would expect.

My purpose was only talking about the stock players of Windows Media Player
v6.4 & 9, QuickTime v6, RealPlayer v8, DivX v2.1 and keeping them separate
and 'as is' stock for reference; but in their stock function they were really
never intended to do the things that Total Recorder was made to do. Total
Recorder or the many other 'all in one' players/recorders available is a
different subject focus than my intentions spoken of here.

Hi Rick,
So, how did you get the codecs? Did you go find a machine with RealPlayer 10 and
copy the .dll files from the Codecs folder? If so, that means maintaining a system
with RealPlayer 10 in order to have access to the .dlls, no? Or am I missing
something (again ;-))

Good morning Glen,

Honestly, this time I just had asked around and found it was already a known
fact that those new codecs were interchangeable between versions and
are available here and there from likeminded places on the web. All my other
codecs saved over the years for the players I mentioned I had actually
upgraded codecs when prompted for every specific file extensions I could find
for each player and tracked the changes thereby gleaning that information and
then using it to update my own players, but this time I admit it was an easy
case of asking around. In all cases though I could see via the updates
tracking that it was always just a matter putting the corresponding dll's in
each players codec draw folder; sometimes a few registry entries went along
with it but in this rp case it didn't need it. I remember a while back for
'bill in co' I had given him the 14_43260.dll & 28_83260.dll files and the
registry file so he could play certain extensions in rp that he wanted, and
it was those that I had previously gotten the way I mentioned and just
extracted the install information out of my tracking logs and gave it to him.
Making stock player codecs work after the fact is just one of the things I
like to do for fun play :)  ..the other things are like keeping outdated
OS's like W98SE or W2Kpro (a little of WXPro too) 'stock' but bring it to its
highest functioning level possible! ..and if it's a hard to get update that
one needs for it ...then I'm the man to see cause I got them all :)  ..and
if they weren't available but only through WU without a download basket -
then I would do the update and track the changes and have the info necessary
to extrapolate my own install of it.. that subject goes for everything
software related too.. ..my nickname should be 'The Tracker' <s>

Rick

......ps, I spoke with Chris Quirke yesterday and he's off working on other
things like Bart's PE for XP (bootable XP on CDR) and building kiff mOS
disks! ...but you know how I feel and would sure still like to get that IE6
delete hang bug fixed at a professional level ...:)  Have you heard of any
progress with it or is it still a long shot :(  ...Thanks for your efforts
with it though - I will always plug away for it to get done <smile>

OK Tracker, so I translate your reply as "google it".... <g>

Right now, I would call it a *very* long shot.

Yeah, and thanks again for that Rick. I think that was for listening to
some real audio at one web site, and now I can't remember which site that
was that needed them! I must be losing it! But to be honest, I haven't
been listening to too much recently.

That's a bit of a challenge over here since I'm still on dial up - so unless
I *really* want to check out something, that sounds interesting, I don't do
it, for obvious reasons (RP or WMP effectively says, "you ain't going
anywhere on the web while I'm playing your tune!) :-)

That's not the kind of tracker I meant really although google is of great
value. What I meant by tracker is that by using software/registry tracking
softwares monitoring installs and then afterwards being able to create
separate install capabilities or whatever was wanted out of the results.

I wish I had direct connections or personally knew the programmers as
friends, if I did then eventually in some lunch or weekend spare time one way
or another even if in trade I would get it done ..if at least it was
unofficially anyway. I don't know any of them though.. :(
