Streaming video & clicking noises in Realplayer

  CurlyWhirly 18:22 22 Aug 2004

I have a Creative Audigy sound card and even though I have updated my driver to one that is dated 23/2/2004 (from the original installation CD drivers that were dated 2002) when I go to the following website click here (that I have just discovered) and play a video using Realplayer it plays okay apart from continual clicking noises.
I even had this happen when the old driver was installed.
Any advice anyone please?
I am on 512 kbps broadband by the way so it couldn't be anything to do with streaming speed!

and not while playing games or surfing the internet for example.

Does anyone know if there is a FREE version of Realplayer that may be more up to date than the one I am running now?
Perhaps this could be the problem.

CurlyWhirly, they have recently released a new version of Realplayer, v10.5.

You can download it from click here

This is a free version(there's the option to upgrade to a paid for version if you wish).

One thing to be aware of with Realplayer(don't know whether your aware of this), depending on how you set your preferences, information about your system may be sent to If you have any concerns, read their privacy policy.

Hope this solves your problem, dagwoood.

I have downloaded the free version and everything is working okay now.
As I am with AOL broadband the RealPlayer replaced my old version of AOL media player (really RealPlayer) and the clicks have now gone.

Yes I am concerned about my Privacy but if you DON'T allow it then the download doesn't work!
It's a NO WIN situation.
