Speed Up Real Player
Yesterday on BoingBoing.net, there was a video clip posted about the theft of one biology professor's laptop computer. The video clip was in Real Media format, and many users complained about its poor quality streamed via the internet.
Here is how to speed up the performance of Real Player:
1. After open Real Player, go to Tools, and select Preference.
2. Under Connection, go to Network Transports tab.
