Re: Real player doesn't work on F9 under KDE

Now it runs the video with no sound at all, but at least it doesn't

over and over.


This implies that Real is pulse aware. It is trying to use pulse for audio, and
failing because your server is down.  When Real comes up, there should be a
way to tell it to use alsa directly, or pulse, or even OSS. I don't have it so I can't tell you for sure, but try edit->preferences if it is there.
So, in the above scenario, while the video is running, edit the sound device
preference and make it alsa or OSS.  You should get sound.  And there should
be a pulse of some sort there, that if you select it, works with pulseaudio. If it doesn't, the pulse plugin in Real is probably incompatible with the pulse server.
Thus the bad sound behavior.
