    Real Player


    hi,
    I am running Mandrake Linux and trying to get the real player plugin work. I have tried all the browsers - Mozilla, Opera and Netscape but none of them is working. I have installed real player but when i try to play something with it an error comes up saying that the sound card is already in use. There were no problems while installation and xmms works fine. can anyone please tell me if i need to do something special.

    Thanks

    look for a palce in realplayer to specify where the output goes to eg. sound card 0. in kde, gnome, and in some cases enlightenment, the soudn card is locked by a sound server. meaning u have to direct output to the sound server program. (arts in KDE, esd/esound in gnome & enlightenment). as for ur browser plugin, its probably sufferiung from the same problem.

    hi,
    thanks for that. but i could not file any file specifying the information you mentioned about. i checked in the installed directory of real player which is ~/RealPlayer8/. is there any other place where i need to check.
    thanks
