I think RealAnime uses HE-AAC, so please see the "Playback problems with HE-AAC" in the FAQ in thread on the Real 10 Platform : "RealPlayer 10 can not currently play back HE-AAC in RM due to two bugs: 1) the AAC renderer plugin does not recognize the 4cc racp for HE-AAC, triggering an auto-update request. Hex-edit to raac is possible. However, then 2) raac.dll will crash, due to another bug. Both bugs have been fixed, and will be included in the Gold release of RealPlayer 10."

Neither of these bugs affect how MPC plays back AAC or HE-AAC, even when it uses raac."

The detailed explanation of what happens here is that #2 triggers the download request. This is a problem in the renderer for AAC which does not recognize the 4cc racp (for HE-AAC), even though the decoder DLL raac.dll can correctly decode it. However, if you hex-edit the file to have 4cc 'raac', it should only freeze the playback or crash the player. Both bugs have already been fixed, but a new release of the fixed DLLs will not happen until the Gold release of RealPlayer 10. In the meantime, you should be able to use Media Player Classic to play back HE-AAC in RM.

I will update the FAQ with this information. thanks!

Does the new version of RealPlayer10 beta released because of security vulnerabilities include the fixes for he-acc playback? Or do we still have to wait until the Gold release for the he-acc playback fixes?

I just checked that earlier today, and unfortunately it includes only the realsched.exe fix + those security fixes. The HE-AAC fix was probably not categorized as critical. It will be included in Gold.

The RealPlayer is using the wrong folder as temp dir on Systems >= NT5. Is there any chance, to direct the temp folder to the local settings folder of a user, for all users of a system/domain (and keep the path relative to the profiles dir of the current user). It is a real problem, when all those temp data is squeezed through the network, when using server based profiles.

Is there any chance to disable (or move the position) the clip cache during the installation? As no normal user has write permission, where it is located.

Regards, Lars

Lars: I have not run into those issues, but I understand they can be problematic. I will file bug reports for both, but I do not know how they will be prioritized. Thanks!

Odd, it has been working for a long time now. But I never use IE, where it will try to launch some kind of download manager. I stick with Opera, to support my friends in Oslo

P.S. Going right to www.real.com is not that bad any longer. Try if you like. The first time you go there you get a big orange button offering to Download the Free Player. And it does! However, a couple of reloads, the button changes to Download the Player. Then you are taken to a 2nd page, which on 2/3 offers the Premium Player, and one the gray 1/3 page to the right, offers the Free Player (with no more hassle than that). I'd say it's better than before.

RealPlayer 10 Gold is now available for download. http://www.real.com. By default RealPlayer 10 now rips music CDs to AAC at 192 kbps in the M4A (MP4) container format. The M4A container format is iPod compatible. Thanks to the feedback from hydrogenaudio and doom9! It was part of the reason M4A was chosen.

This is a bug fix release, with not that many new features since Beta. For instance the HE-AAC playback bug is now fixed and the DLL update from Helix Binary Downloads is no longer needed.

Here is a list of some changes:
Code:
  *  Support for AAC (M4A) files, which includes library import, 
     playback, CD ripping, CD burning, and transfer to portable devices.

  *  Users can now simultaneously burn a CD and playback a media clip.

  *  Users can initiate playback of a file that's being download using 
     another application ("progressive download").

  *  Installation speed has been improved and the number of icons 
     installed on the user's machine has been reduced.

  *  RP10 detects changes in network settings and prompts the user to 
     set bandwidth, which improves playback if the bandwidth has changed 
     (such as a laptop that is disconnected from a LAN).

  *  Improved user interface to make Transfer and Synchronization easier 
     with portable devices.

  *  Support for third-party store content including nodes in the Library 
     to catalog a variety of purchased content types (movies, 
     audio books, etc.).

  *  A variety of improvements to Help, How To, Tell Me More, and More Info.

Thank you Karl and all of the Real Networks & Helix developers! I've been enjoying RealJukebox and RealPlayer for years.

Karl,

It is nice to see RA & AAC support. In an earlier thread, you and I discussed an optimal compression level for a music library. I was settled on 192 RA because it was actually AAC. Now there is 192 AAC and 192 RA. Is 192 RA still AAC? What is the difference between the two?

P.S. Would you know of a good skin for use on a HTPC? RP is my HTPC jukebox, but the standard skin is not NTSC TV friendly.

Thanks! It is nice to hear feedback like this.

192 kbps RealAudio is also AAC, just in the RealMedia container format, so the difference is in the container format only. One can losslessly convert from one to the other and back. If you have the Plus player this functionality should be built in there, maybe also in standard player, but I have not yet verified this myself. The dtdrive cmd line tool works as well.

I am sorry I don't know any good skins for HTPC. How is the skin not NTSC friendly? Too small resolution details being lost in interlace flicker, or too large frames?

That's what I figured. I was worried for a moment that Real decided to stay with Cook for all .RA files and put AAC support in its own container. Unless you can tell me what advantage there is of a Real container over M4A, I'm going to use M4A as my next library format. Of course, the help file explains as little as possible about the difference between audio formats, leaving the reader scratching his head and asking "And?!" :-(

The problems I have with the interface on a tv are the following:
1. Too much white making a difficult situation worse.
2. Fonts can't be sized making it very difficult to read the media browser and other GUI widgets because the font is so small.
3. Buttons need to be larger to allow easy clicking when manuvering the mouse with a remote or at best, a Gyration mouse in the air.

I kind of wish Real did get into HTPC software market like SnapStream or myHTPC, but I guess selling media is the direction Real's going. Nothing wrong with that, but...

More than likely includes bug fixes. It's a free download. Go for it! :-)

Are you maximizing the screen or going to Full Screen? I have noticed the bars in full screen.
