Real player stops working in windows 7

Real Player, which I use to download videos in Firefox, has worked well for a long time. Now it stops working when I download or go to My Library. If I use windows explorer to look at the video files I have downloaded IT stops working. I deleted all files in my library and uninstalled real player and downloaded a a new copy but I still have the same problem.

Ideas much appreciated!

  1. Hi there,

    Are you running a 32-bit or 64-bit version of Windows 7? You may not be able to run the RealPlayer Downloader plugin in a 64-bit browser. If that's the case, use the 32-bit version instead (IE8 has this).

    Cheers,

  2. Good god, people still use that?

    Use firefox, but use some of the video download programs like download helper or downthemall. To play back the .flv files use GOM player. Your videos will look great and your problems should be over.

    Thanks. GOM works with no problems. However, any other application I use to try to view or simply look at the properties of a .flv file stops working. I use Firefox. Windows Explorer (not IE) all stop working. GOM views them fine. Strange.

    Firefox and explorer are not video players. They might use plug ins to handle videos, but a real video player should work better. If you need to inspect/view the details of a file, try Gspot. That program should provide details you need.
