Thread: Real Alternative 1.23 Setting Wave Volume To 0

  1. #1
    Hi,

    I uninstalled RealPlayer yesterday and installed Real Alternative 1.23 in its place. However, when I opened any RealMedia file in it, I was getting no sound. Checking the volume controls, I noticed that the Wave slider was all the way down, so I dragged it back up and thought that was the end of the matter.

    However, the problem kept returning, and I noticed it was the included Media Player Classic reducing the wave volume to 0, as soon as a RealMedia file (either locally stored or streamed ones via Firefox) was opened in it.

    I've searched Google and it seems a few others are having this problem, but the only suggested fix of deleting MPC's INI file resulted in not being able to play RM files at all.

    Is anyone familiar with this problem and whether there's a fix?

    Thanks.

    Can you post the contents of your .ini file? Then we can try to analyse which entry causes the problem.


    After that try version 1.24 beta1 that you can find in the development section.

    Uninstalled 1.23 then tried 1.24 beta1. It has the opposite problem--it increases the Wave volume a setting a few notches above the one I normally use.

    Do you still want my mplayerc.ini? I've compared the files from my 1.23 and 1.24 beta 1 installations and the only difference between them appears to be the recent files list.

    I now know where the problem is. I don't think it will ever be completely fixed (MPC doesn't seem to be updated much anymore), but it already is less annoying the way it is now.

    What level is your volume on normally? Like 70 or 75%?

    same here. i have my wave channel at 100% and 1.24b knocks it down to 75-80%...almost, at least much better than 50 or 0%

    It can be tweaked with these registry settings:

    Code:
    REGEDIT4
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Software\RealNetworks\RealMediaSDK\6.0\Preferences\Volume]
    @="75"
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Software\RealNetworks\RealMediaSDK\6.0\Preferences\EmbededVolume]
    @="80"
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Software\RealNetworks\RealMediaSDK\10.0\Preferences\Volume]
    @="75"
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Classes\Software\RealNetworks\RealMediaSDK\10.0\Preferences\EmbededVolume]
    @="80"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RealNetworks\RealMediaSDK\10.0\Preferences\Volume]
    @="75"
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\RealNetworks\RealMediaSDK\10.0\Preferences\EmbededVolume]
    @="80"

    I tried the registry thing with beta1 and it does the job, but it's not really a fix.

    I uninstalled beta1 earlier today and tried beta2. The wave volume problem appeared to be gone--it didn't touch it when I opened an .rm file. But a new problem emerged. In any local .rm file I played, there was sound but no video.
