No sound from Real Player

A few weeks ago I lost the sound from Real; video plays fine; same problem with stand-alone and embedded players.

I thrashed the app as well as all the prefs; repaired permissions and restarted before reinstalling. Same problem.

Any ideas?

Don't use Real Player.

I have no ideas how to fix the problem, sorry.
Check in your Audio Setup app (in Utilities) to make sure that it didn't set your sample rate to 96khz. This has happened to me a few times in the past with both flash and realplayer and was a real headscratcher. Going back to 44.1khz solved all the issues.

I don't know how you ended up figuring this one out, but it worked!

Oddly enough my speakers were set at 44.1kHz, but my microphone was at 96. How a mike set up not used in the application at all (it is a PLAYER) can screw up the app is beyond comprehension... :mad:

Many thanks! ;)

Another one for the ehMac community :love2:
