Real Player

Page history last edited by helmsdeeper 14 years, 9 months ago

 

This is a workaround for people experiencing erratic audio/video viewing broadband

streams online or saved locally on your computer.

 

 

Example- Lets say you are attempting to play a streaming video encoded @ 220kbps. Many times the audio/video

will studder and the player controls seem to become unresponsive or delayed in action.

However the same video being streamed for dialup users @ 32 or 56 kbps plays perfectly.

If you encounter this behavior try this......

 

Close the Real Player first.

Open this Klikit linux Synaptic Package Manager and install the program "alsa-oss", then close Synaptic.

Then either open Konqueror in super-user mode or log in as root and use a text program like "Kwrite" or "Kate" to

open /usr/lib/realplay-(version # here)/realplay. Scroll down to the end of the program where it shows

the following:

 

while /bin/true; do

 # Restart the player if exit code is 10

 $REALPLAYBIN "$@"

 if [ $? -ne 10 ]; then

 break

 fi

 done

 fi

 

Change the following line to add the word "aoss" so it looks like this:

 

while /bin/true; do

 # Restart the player if exit code is 10

 aoss $REALPLAYBIN "$@"

 if [ $? -ne 10 ]; then

 break

 fi

 done

 fi

 

Then simply select save (not save as) and you are done.

Now sit back and enjoy your highspeed stream! :)
