Can anyone get this RealPlayer sample lecture to play?
I cannot, and any help is greatly appreciated. I don't care WHAT browser.

I can only get sound and table of contents to play. No video. This is with FF + Realplayer plugin.

lumix 03-17-2007 04:25 PM

Hmm. Interesting....
Which RealPlayer plugin are you using exactly?

jay73 03-17-2007 04:36 PM

Yes, I can. Person in front of a blackboard teaching Java.

Using firefox + mplayerplug-in (in addition to flash, java and helix plug-ins) on Ubuntu; haven't tested yet on any of the other distributions.

It plays very well for me. I am using Firefox 2 and RealPlayer-10.0.8 on CentOS 5 beta.

Must say I've never tried to use it for Real video, only for audio files.

Ah, hadn't installed RealPlayer.

Okay, Now....
here's the prize-winning question:

Can anyone see the lecture slides?

dive 03-17-2007 05:16 PM

I did at first when I clicked a link it opened a new window with a slide. Just updated Real + plugin and this no longer works. Old one doesn't work either now.

jay73 03-17-2007 08:34 PM

Are you sure that the slides are in the video? The guidelines say code and slides need to be downloaded and printed prior to viewing.

lumix 03-18-2007 03:10 PM

Those slides are different from the ones that actually stream in along with the video, cue by the smil file as I understand it.

Dive, do you remember which player/version and plugin/version you were using when the slides showed up? This could be a huge help to the HU online system for Linux users, since none have been able to get to the slides.

dive 03-18-2007 03:36 PM

The versions I first posted, but I reverted back and it no longer works. Tried playing with FF popup blocker too but no change.

lumix 03-18-2007 04:53 PM

Did you revert back on the plugin as well as the browser, or was the browser never changed in the first place?

Thanks for feedback, incidentally.
