RealPlayer buffering or unauthorized use setting

If the link you are attempting to play from Blackboard has specific begin and end times, please have your instructor contact their Blackboard Administrator.

If you are experiencing poor performance on playback of longer video segments of RealMedia, it can, in most firewall related cases, be corrected by a quick change to their player preferences.

PC users:

Open Realplayer, goto Tools >Connections >Network Transports Check the box “Use specific UDP ports” and allow it to use the default value of 7070-7071 as circled below.

Stop the stream if it is running and click the play button to restart, or re-start your computer.
