Close what menu?

I have RP open and the BBC is a page.

What menu you talking about?

  Pesala 13:49 13 Apr 2003

Go to BBC News Home Page: click here

Click on BBC One TV News: click here to view the news in RealOne Player.

Click on the link that says "Click here to close this window."

Do you also get an error message in the lower windows?

No i do not.

I'm watching it right now.

Me neither, watching it now, works fine, even on 56k dial up. J.

Powerless, when I click to close the menu, a second window opens in the bottom pane with the error message. I can click to close that window, but then I have to resize the top window: click here

I can then continue to watch the News, after the video restarts from the beginning.

Sorry, but still no problem. J.

At the moment i have Realplayer closed.

If i click "(Video) BBC TV News Latest" It opens up a small realplayer window. Within that window i see the video and play/stop etc controls.

So i do not get "Click here to close this window."

Have you tried within Realplayer accesing the BBC site.

Open up RP and then hover the mouse over "NEWS" and then click "BBC NEWS".

The BBC page will open in RP and when you click "(Video) BBC TV News Latest" it should play above.

Tried that. Starts with two windows open. Clicked on BBC news link in bottom window. News opened in the top. Clicked on close here to hide window. No error this time, but I still have to close the bottom window and resize the player. So it take much longer than my other method. Thanks for trying, but problem still not resolved.
