One of our clients is running Windows 7 64-bit and needs to stream RM files for his job. Specifically he is trying to access files from the Oregon Legislature website:

http://www.leg.state.or.us/listn/

When he tries to play one, it will open RealPlayer but never get to streaming. I have tried older versions of RealPlayer, RealPlayer Classic and VLC but all will not stream the files. They just sit there doing nothing.

I thought it might be his AV so I temporarily disabled it but that didn't help either. I can access the files just fine on my Windows 7 64-bit laptop, and I can access them from a Windows XP machine on the same network as the other one.

Is there something I am missing? Would a broken registry key be causing this? Or perhaps something else I might be overlooking?

Open VLC, go to Tools -> Messages, change the Verbosity to 2 (debug), and then attempt to open the .rm file. Include the log here so we can see exactly what VLC is doing and why it can't play back / stream the file. –  Darth Android Jan 23 '13 at 19:13
    
Ok, I will have to try that on our next visit. Might be a day or two. –  TheShaggyBeard Jan 23 '13 at 19:49
