Download latest Windows Media Player

Try also one of the players in the following website, in case your system is malfunctioning with Media Player:The Alternative | Replacements for Windows Media Player

If that does not fix the problem, then you may need to add more RAM memory to your system.

Need more information to really help you. Are you playing movies in the DVD/CD player of the laptop? Are you playing movies by streaming from Netflix or Amazon or Hulu or Xfinity? Are you playing movies from an external hard drive or flashdrive plugged into an older USB 2.0 port?
Your wi-fi connection may be too slow to stream without freezing. Your cpu/processor may be too old and slow to handle HD video. Your video/graphics chip built-in to the laptop may be old and not capable of handling HD quality video.

Need to download movies and music with realplayer


The new release of RealPlayer SP (for Windows) or RealPlayer 11 (for Linux or Mac systems) provides an option to download streaming movies right from the Internet.
With the RealPlayer, an additional button is added above movies embedded in web pages that allows you to download the movie with just one click.
To have this option, follow the specific instructions during the installation of RealPlayer.
After the installation is complete, you can download movies with the Real Player.

Download and install the RealPlayer SP or 11 (see Below for download links.)
http://www.real.com/mac/realplayer
http://www.real.com/linux
http://www.real.com/realplayer
Close your Internet browser if you have it up before starting the installation process.
During the installation process, choose the option to have the "Download This Video" button added as an plug-in for your Internet browsers.
Open your Internet browser and go to the website that has the streaming movie embedded.
Click above the video player or move the mouse around the embedded video area until you see the "Download This Video" button displayed in the top right-hand corner of the video player.
Click the "Download This Video" button.
Real Player then starts to download the movie.
Depending on how long the movie is and the speed of your Internet connection, it could take a long time for the video to finish downloading.
Download Music on MySpace Using Real Player
MySpace is a popular social networking site which allows you to connect with your favorite artists and bands, upload your own music, photos and blogs, and communicate with friends.
It hosts millions of songs which you can stream anytime, anywhere, and using RealPlayer, it's easy to download them.
RealPlayer is a universal media playing program which lets you download, convert and share every major media format.
Its built-in media browser means you can surf the Web while playing video clips or listening to music, and it's the ideal tool for grabbing songs from MySpace.

Download the latest version of RealPlayer.
Open the downloaded package, follow the instructions to complete RealPlayer installation and navigate to the MySpace profile of the band or artist whose song you want to download.

Click the song you want to download in your chosen band or artist's MySpace music player to play it.
Hover the mouse cursor over the song title in the MySpace music player when the song starts playing to bring up the "Download This Clip" pop-up from the RealPlayer Downloader plug-in.
Click the "Download This Clip" pop-up and wait for the download to finish.
Open RealPlayer, click "My Library" and locate your downloaded song; it is ready to play whenever you like.

I cant see movies


well...assuming you have the laptop open and on you may have a conflicting driver. I would recommend checking your video drivers. If you have installed any new software to play movies it may have overwritten the drivers to play movies.
Please reply with the Operating system you are using and the program you want to use to watch movies.
Thank you

When I watch a movie/video clip from a DVD or online my laptop performs -very- poorly. It will "skip" ahead to various parts or take forever to play and will not play continuously. How can I fix this?


Hello.

I would suggest that you upgrade or reinstall the video software that you are using, such as Windows Media Player.

But, you didn't indicate if the Only time your laptop performs poorly occurs when watching a movie or video clip. If your laptop is slow in other ways as well, let us know.

Hope this helps.

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
