Broken RealVideo

Hello,

Some RealVideo streams downloaded by Offline Explorer Pro is not played
correctly with RealOne Player.
I`m using OEP 2.6.1035, and the bandwidth setting is "10Mbps LAN."
(And my actual connection is also 10Mbps.)

Here are the examples:
rtsp://210.150.14.38/vod/nasda/f3_liftoff_s.rm
rtsp://210.150.14.38/vod/nasda/f3_srb-a_ssb.rm

It doesn`t get any output in the first 5~10 seconds.
Download versions are also available, so you can see the difference.

I`m looking forward to your answer.

Best Regards,

Dear Richard Berg,

Thank you for reporting the problem. It is a known thing.

The file format is not documented. So I have to guess, how the file should be made. Speaking techically, each Real Media file has index at its end, which helps the player locate video and audio while dragging the slider. Incorrect index assembly leads to such problems. I tried before and spend several hours today again to find how the index should be correctly assembled, but so success so far. Sorry.

I will continue working on this in future.

Best regards,
