How to use Real Player

I just posted a problem that you helped me solve, but now I have another question. I downloaded Real Player, and then dragged a mpg file I had downloaded from Limewire onto the icon in the tray and got a message saying Real Player couldn't open the file with the current version of QuickTime installed. Does this mean I have to uninstall QuickTime? If so, how do I do that? I'm assuming that if I uninstall QuickTime, then all other movie files I download will try to open using (what is now the default player) Real Player. Is this true?

MPEG video plays only sound, not picture

I think it might be either a CODEC or memory issue. The CODEC thing can be solved by downloading the K-Lite CODEC pack, which you can find free via an internet search (see below). The memory issue is harder to solve. You need to see when you are playing the video if your CPU is running very high. If it is then you will struggle to play the track on your current computer without improving the memory. However I think it more likely that it is a CODEC issue since both the players you mention are not set up to play some MPEG files, as not all CODEC's are included.

You can download the CODECS here:

However always use the advanced option for installing as they do like to put on software that might change your default browser. You can decline these with that option.

Some people use VLC player, but all though this will play just about every video file, it will turn the icons into a thing that looks like a traffic cone! So I don't recommend it.

How to solve error message C00D11B1

Computer program errors are discussable. First, the programs require compatibility to the entire computer system to take effects either as downloads or installation from internet of disk drives. Computer software programs have compatibility versions to each system innovated. For example, windows media player version 9 or earlier is installable on older computers where version 10 above compatible to recent innovated computers. In situations that computer least captures the window media player effect requires acquiring another media player. For example, real one media player has the compatibilities to generic device either Microsoft of apple Mac computers. Also, available are generic media programs that least requires compatibilities to install however least has satisfactory expectations discussable. Error observations are solvable either as attaining an alternate program software least incompatible or capturing a computer that is compatible to the program requesting installation.
