RealPlayer not responding error message

  Al Davies 16:05 08 Mar 2011

Hi folks,

I am having a problem with Real player in that when I click My Videos and RealPlayer downloads, everything freezes and the only way out is to Control,Alt,Delete when I get the message "Real Player not responding"
I have uninstalled the programme and re-installed and it worked OK for one session but has now failed again.
I have Windows XP Pro.

I have seen a suggestion to stop using Real Player and use DivX instead.

Has anyone had any experience of this and would the RealPlayer downloads already in My videos work with DivX or is there a fix for the RealPlayer issue?

Many thanks.
