Downloading RealPlayer 8 Basic
For Windows 98 and above, click here.
For Windows 95,
For Macintosh, click here.
In the top right hand corner, directly under
'RealNetworks' there is a light grey link for the free version
'FREE RealOne Player' (This is not obvious). Once you click
this link you will need to click the next link for the free
version on the bottom right hand side of the new page.
And if RealPlayer has recently changed the
links, then visit www.real.com,
and look for 'Free RealOne Player'. I last saw it in the
very top right hand corner of the main page. But they are
very tricky and make it harder to find all the time. They
will try to sell you the paid version which is called RealOne
Player Plus. Don't fall for the 'Fourteen Day Free Trial'
but keep looking for the link that says: Free RealOne
Player. Even when you click on this, they will try and
sell you the paid version. Look to the right of the screen
for 'RealOne Player' with no Plus after it.)
Please note that other than the brief guidelines
on this page, we do not provide technical support for real
audio. However, the following may help. It's very useful
to be able to listen to streaming audio over the internet.
If you have not been able to do that in the past, then I
strongly recommend you make the effort now to get it running
on your computer.
1) If you believe your problem is with the
RealPlayer, then you might like to try their Frequently Asked Questions.
2) If this does not resolve the problem,
I suggest you contact your local IT expert to get the capability
on your computer. It's worth it.
3) If you can normally listen to real audio,
it may simply be that traffic on the internet is heavy at
the moment. In this case, wait a few hours and try again.
4) If the recording keeps stopping and starting,
try shutting down all applications except your browser and
Real Player (this frees up memory). If this doesn't work,
again it might be internet traffic, and you might like to
try again in a few hours.
5) If you have a firewall, it can cause problems
with streaming audio. I suggest you shut it down just to
listen to the recording. Alternatively, there is supposed
to be a way to configure real audio to use HTTP only (although
I haven't been able to do it).
6) If you don't have the latest version of
RealPlayer (it should be called RealOne), then I suggest
you upgrade to it: click here.
I hope this helps. Trust me - these days
it's important to be able to listen to real audio on the
internet. So it's worth the effort.
