RealPlayer10 will not play the files unless the laptop is connected to the internet.
The error message from RealPlayer begins with "connection to server could not be established" if playing is attempted while offline.
I have done internet searches looking for references to this problem but haven`t found anything
specific to offline browsing.
If I need to be doing something differently, please advise.

Many thx for your assistance. Sadly, that does not work either.
I downloaded the website with vanilla options.
Options_Internet_Connection_Internal Http server_Enable on port 800 is checked.
The message from RP10 is that this clip cannot be played, it contains unexpected data and may be corrupt.
I un-checked the internal server option so that it was not active and tried again.
This time Rp10 displayed the message that this metafile contains invalid syntax and would not play.
It is my belief that the .ram files have been gimmicked by the owner due to copyright paranoia.
Methinks there may not be a workaround.
I used Webcow to download just the language files into a different directory and they will only play if the internet connection is available. When it is not, the RP10 message is that connection to the server could not be established.
There may very well be something else that I am missing, and if so, please point it out. In any case,
thank you, again, for your time and attention.
I most abashedly apologize for my stupidity.
I did not realize how the .ram files worked, that they were only pointers. The .rm files were never
captured, and cannot be. The owner will not allow it.
Many thx, Bob.
File Filters | Video and Audio sections - I changed their Location box to "Load from any site". Then click OK button and start loading the site.
The files I download won`t play in this way! Real Player (v10) launches but will not play the file. However, if I upload the file to my webserver, it plays fine. And it also plays fine through the OE interface. Could this be a new form of protection to check if the file is "online".
If you want to try, use OE to record a few minutes from this live stream and then try and playback from your download directory.....
I know! I was just suggesting this link as an example.
(OE will find the .ra file and start downloading. Finalize, then locate the .ra file in rtsp@ folder. Please try playing the .ra file from your download directory and it doesn`t work. But it does play from OE interface.)
Thanks for your patience.
I am using the RealOne player (v. 2.0, based on Helix v. 6.11).

Dear Oleg. I am a lay person when it comes to computers. I installed OE but it didn`t help me get the video I want from the webpage I am interested in. The Real player says that there is something missing, which doesn`t allow me to have the vieo downloaded to my notebook. How come?
Can you please describe me in details, what video you were downloading and your steps you tried to do? I need the page URLs and other details that may help.
