    Okay, I need some help here. First, I tried to pick up Links radio and the 365 page lead me through a page to check my system requirements. It wanted me to download a higher version of player than I had.

    I have Realplayer 7 Basic. It wants 8, so I went ahead and clicked it so 365 plays fine now. But the RealPlayer on my desktop (which is still 7 Basic) doesn't work now. It will come up and everything, but it won't play anything; won't play mp3's I have, or even sound clips on Amazon.com.

    Earlier, I tried to upgrade to 8 Basic, but it kept bringing up a message saying it would go ahead and contact RealPlayer to update, but nothing would happen. Which would be fine for me to stay with 7 Basic, except now it no longer works.

    Should I just go to the RealPlayer site and download 8 Basic, or should I try to upgrade the 7 (which I can't figure out how to do)? If I download 8 Basic, will I then have both of them, or will it eliminate the earlier version?

    Any help would be great. Thanks. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Just go Real's site and download 8 and dump everything else off your computer.

    I really don't like Real Audio, all that crap it loads that you have to unload and the stuff it tries to load on your browser. It's ridiuclous, I use MusicMatch now for almost everything.

    Thanks Brett. I downloaded 8 Basic and my system shows that the 7 Basic is gone without me having to remove it.

    Either way, it's working again. Thanks. [img]smile.gif[/img]

    Since RealPlayer 4.0, I've never had a stable version of it.

    I've dumped RealNetworks for years and will continue that trend...

    I recently encountered the same problem Glenn did but went the other route and downloaded MusicMatch.

    Un-Radio comes in just fine now. Thanks for the tip, guys.

    Does musicmatch have a video player?

    I bought a musicmatch CD jukebox package ages ago, but it's only an audio system, not video. At least I don't think it's got video capability. [img]redface.gif[/img]

    I really should know these things.

    Brother, I'm misty eyed.

    At least, I think that's mist.

    Sorry to inform you it's only a music program. No video capability... Unless I just haven't found it.

    It was a tough search, let me tell you.

    Has anybody else got both Realplayer and RealJukebox? I downloaded them together and it's very odd. Sometimes when I click on an mp3 on the net it brings up one or the other to play it, there doesn't seem to be any rhyme or reason which it chooses.

    Also, the video player (which is the Realplayer) sometimes comes up in it's normal, small size, and other times it comes up so that it covers most of the screen.

    It's really no big deal since I can still access both audio and video on the net, but it was much easier when all of it ran through just the Realplayer. Which makes me wonder, if I de-install the Realjukebox, will the Realplayer still work for the audio stuff? All of the mp3's I have on my hard drive show the Realjukebox as their path (each mp3 has a musical note attached to it, which is the Realjukebox symbol), would those mp3's just change over to Realplayer if I got rid of the Realjukebox? Thanks.

    musicmatch does not do video, but Windows Media Player does. The only thing WMP won't do is the .rm and .ram formats. For that you need real.

    The issue of what player plays what, all you do is go to the preferences of the media player and select which media you want that particular player to play.

    For an intergated, well functioning, multi-purpose media player, you can't beat WMP, and it's free! Realjukebox is a highly rated audio player but I've always found it buggy

    I use WMP for most everything except mp3 ripping, and for that a registered version of musicmatch does a descent job.

    Just my 2 cents

    I remember when Windows Media 6 first came out, there were codecs for Real Audio and Video 4.0 that came with it.

    Drew a lot of controversy, that's for sure.

    WMP 7 is very cool, provided you have lots of memory and fast hardware. Not even Winamp lets you use the graphic equalizer on CDs, which is AWESOME, needless to say Visualizations could be better on WMP, though. Not as smooth as Winamp's vis, but it's very cool still.

    What really sucks is that Media Player 8, which is a much-improved version of 7, will ONLY be available on Windows XP's upgrade as of right now. They'd better change that
