Real Player 10.0 GOLD on FC2 - Choppy Playback


I have a choppy playback problem with Real Player 10.0 GOLD rpm on Fedora Core 2. It installed fine, but when I try to play a .rm clip off my hard drive, it buffers (although it's on the HDD) and then plays back for a fraction of a second, before becoming choppy, both in audio and video.

My question is this:

1. Is it a codec problem?
2. Should I have installed the .bin, not the .rpm?
3. Where can I find the .bin file?
4. Other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

The .bin is at
when you click the large 'download' button, that is what you get
you have to click the 'advanced installation' link to get the .rpm

That's weird...

I have Real Player 10 Gold on FC2 that was installed using the rpm as well and I've never run into this problem which makes me think that it could be the file you are viewing.

The only problems I've ever encountered is that Real Player will sometimes tell me that a file is written with an outdated codec.

Maybe try a different file and see if it runs okay or maybe uninstall and reinstall...but I doubt that will change much.

Sorry I can't be more help.
