Why won't RealPlayer work in TV Ark website?

I have recently found a website that I like but unfortunately I can't get RealPlayer to work when streaming the video file!
RealPlayer works with other websites but NOT with click here!
When attempting to play a video clip the screen says 'Connecting' and then immediately 'Stopped' comes up with nothing to look at but a blank screen!


I have uninstalled the old version of RealPlayer and downloaded a new version but this makes NO difference.
Can someone please advise?

All I can say is I've just tried it and it works fine for me. Version Ten of Real Player.

Thanks for replying.
I have found a way around the problem and that is to save the fle directly to my Download folder on my hard drive by right clicking on the RealPlayer icon and selecting 'Save target as...'


I can then play the file back using my (updated) version 10 of RealPlayer.
It strikes me as odd that I can play EVERY other site's video streams EXCEPT this one!
Do you (or anyone else) know how I can tweak my RealPlayer settings?
Thanks for your help again!

Not to worry as it is only THIS site that is affected I will just download the video clips that I need to hard drive in order to be able to play them!
