I have recently downloaded a few videos and I am having abit of problem to watch them. When I click on them realplayer shows "clip not found" which I have not moved or deleted it, I found a solution by copying it to the other hard drive I have, and realplayer actually plays it. However, that means each time when I want to watch a video, I would have to move it to another hard drive.

Are there any solutions better than this? I have checked on reaplayers support, but nothing helped.

thanks,

This could be that your hard disk is dying.. YOU could do a test on them by doing the following

go to "MY COMPUTER "
richtclick
propperties
extra
check volume for errors and tick the two boxes
press start

it will now ask you to reboot and than a hard disk test will be done. please post whatever result there is.

thanks for the reply,

I checked my c: volume and it had a fixed a few errors, however not with my realplayer. I have done another search on my problem, which I assumed that it might be the problem with the difference of file systems of my hard drives. c:/ is NTFS and d:/ is FAT32. Would anyone please tell me if that has caused this problem.

Try this:

To make RealPlayer your universal media player after installation:

1. Open RealPlayer, then click the Tools menu and choose Preferences. The Preferences box opens.
2. Under the Content category, click Media Types.
3. In the Media Types dialog box, choose Make RealPlayer my Universal Media Player, then click OK.

To re-assign file types to RealPlayer:

1. Open RealPlayer, then click the Tools menu and choose Preferences. The Preferences box opens.
2. Under the Content category, click Media Types.
3. In the Media Types dialog box, choose Manually configure media types for RealPlayer, then click the Select button. From the list that appears, you can choose the types of files you want to play using RealPlayer.
4. Make sure that Reapply your media type settings every time RealPlayer starts and When clicking media in the RealPlayer Media Browser, play in RealPlayer are selected.
5. Click OK.
6. Restart RealPlayer.
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
