Hi alwazeer,

The problem is most likely the codecs, either it is not using the correct ones or they are corrupt. Reinstall your codecs of choice.

I use The Real Alternative Codec to play Ream Media files inside media player.

But my player of choice that works flawlessly for me for every codec I need is GOM Media Player. It's also designed to work with the real alternative codec above.

Good luck.

Thanks TimStitt

All versions of sounds works well !!! But

(rmvb) works, but without sound, I see the picture but without sound.

I'm talking about Media Center and not any other program

Is this a general problem or just 4 me?

Hi alwazeer,

I understand your issue. What you need to do is install the real alternative codecs (not the player) and select the choices shown in my screen prints.

Once this is installed, the sound should work correctly in media player.

If this still doesn't work it is most likely still a codec issue. I gaurantee you that I can play rmvb files on media player in Windows 7, so we should be able to get yours working too.

My Installed codecs are as follows:
- Windows 7 Codec Pack (many codecs)
- Real Alternative (Real Media files)
- Mpeg2DSS codec. (MPEG2 - Special version required for some movies compliled in China, Japan, & Korea)

If you absolutely want to play rmvb in Media Center, you will need to install a 32bit operating system.
At this time no 64bit codec exists for 'cook audio'.

A few home produced realmedia video's contain aac for audio
but the majority of realmedia files contain cook audio.

We will wait until the issuance of the appropriate codec

Hi Shark007,

This is interesting. I just checked over 10 different rmvb files that I have from a variety of sources and they all play under my Windows 64bit box through media player. Can you point me in the direction of a small rmvb with cook audio so I can look into this?

Cheers

Tim

BTW - I can play both rmvb files (with sound) in the cook directory here http://samples.mplayerhq.hu/real/AC-cook/cook_5.1/
However I do agree that there is information on the web suggesting that rmvb files encoded with cook audio won't work on 64 bit. I just can't find that doesn't work.

Sometimes assuming that people read is not enough. Sometimes to pull them out of that assuming cloud, you have to hold thier hand. It is akin to teaching a man to fish, cause then he gets to sit back, enjoy the sunshine, and drink beer all day.

On x64 Windows installations...
media player = 32bit (uses 32bit codecs)
media centrer = 64bit (uses 64bit codecs)

After you fire up the proper player and test your files, assume nothing more, and open a beer.
