Re: Simple RealPlayer/Multimedia Solution



Hi everyone.  I have a sound problem too, but tried the link just below
and that works GREAT on RealPlayer.  Nice video and audio.  I wonder if
that means that I really don't have an audio problem but rather I need
to turn some switches/buttons etc on...

I sure would like RealPlayer to come up when I bring up WWW.CNN.COM  and
ask for their audio track.  That no longer works for me since upgrading
to FC2???
