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.

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.

Okay, Now....

here's the prize-winning question:

Can anyone see the lecture slides?

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.

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.

Yeah...

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.

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

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.
