Can anyone explain to me why everytime I listen to a stream through Real Player it always Time Outs? It's extremely annoying and the only reason that I can think of that it does this is that I'm only using the free version. Is that why? I hope that isn't why. But in any case does anyone know why and how it can be corrected? It Times Out ever 2 minutes. It's a hassle a specially when that's the only player some site offer for their stream. They do offer to down load the recording and I'm not sure if it would only play in Real then too? What ever you might know about this I'd appreciate hearing. Thank you.

see if this helps r u using plyer 10 ?

Increase the time-out settings, and try playing the clip again.

1. In RealPlayer on the Tools menu, click Preferences. The Preferences box opens.
2. In the Category pane, click Connection.
3. Under Network Time-out, increase the time-out settings by 10 seconds.
4. Click OK.
5. Try to play the clip again.
6. If you still have problems, increase the time-out settings by another 10 seconds and try again.

Keep trying until the clip plays or it becomes obvious that increasing the time-out settings will not resolve this problem. Increasing this time also increases the time you wait for a time-out message to appear.
