    I have VLC, I don't need or want Realplayer with its countless MBs of bundled toolbars and "utilities".

    Streeming fine for millions of others ..... so are you sure you don't have a firewall blocking rstp packets ?
    If not, then I think you've found the case for installing Real and unticking the box for all the "helper" and "add-ons"

    i totally understand and agree, i didnt install it because there is nothing else i would use realplayer for and am a bit of a geek in the sense i would like to keep my pc as light' as possible.

    No, its Real that's the problem.

    I just tried watching a clip of Ray Mears, the first alternative link to clips I came across; options for Windows Media Player or Real;
    - Windows works fine for both hig/low res
    - Real doesn't stream properly, its just a series of still images.

    So, even without the bloat installed, I still have 26MB of Real Player sat on my hard disk, and the first time that I have used it for about 6 months it doesn't work.

    Still; 3 1/2 hours to go!

    So this is an OLD installation of Real ?
    First, recommend getting the recent updates ( better decoder performance ).
    Also, check that all the settings are at automatic.
    Specifically make sure that the bandwidth settings match your reality.
    I've seen what you describe on low speed broadband when set to be LAN

    THere really is nothing "wrong" with Real, it's just another company trying to make money with a patented compression
