Configuring RealPlayer on Windows
On Windows, you must use RealOne, because this server notices you are using Windows and dynamically generates SMIL presentations that assume you have the latest version of RealOne.
Download RealOne from www.real.com. You must go through several pages that try to sell the premium player, but keep looking for the smaller links on the right to find the free player.
Important: After launching RealOne in Windows, go to "Tools/Preferences," then click on "Hardware" in the left-hand Category section, and then move the "Video Card Compatibility" slider all the way over to the "Most reliable" side. If you don't do this RealOne may frequently crash!
If RealOne crashes in Windows, it can remain in memory and prevent you from restarting the player again. To use it again, you must find the realplay process in the task manager, select it, and "End Process."
Configuring RealPlayer on Linux
On Linux and Solaris you must use RealPlayer 10. If you do not have RealPlayer installed, you may need to contact your system support or install it yourself. The freely available version of RealPlayer10 for UNIX machines can be downloaded from http://proforma.real.com/real/player/unix/unix.html
On IDIAP Linux machines, RealPlayer 10 is available from
Browser Configuration (both Unix and Windows)
If your browser does not automatically launch Real player when you click on a video image or play button, then you probably need to add the MIME type "application/smil" to your browser configuration.
In Mozzila, for example, go to Edit / Preferences / Navigator / Helper Applications / New Type. Then provide the path to realplay to associate with the mime-type "application/smil." For the file extension, use ".smil"
On Unix systems after launching RealPlayer10, go to Help / "Mime Type Plugin Install..." to automatically configure the Mime types.
