This file will be modified as we have more information - so please do check our website periodically for new and updated information. What's New in 10.0.6.1386 This build includes many fixes and incremental improvements over the earlier releases. A lot of the work in this build also has gone towards stabilizing features and fixing many known issues and bugs. Security Issues Fixed in This Release * Incorrect RIFF/DATA chunk size headers causes player to crash * Long String in SMIL Parameter "system-screen-size" Causes Buffer Overflow Other Issues Fixed in This Release * audio/PCMU component missing https://bugs.helixcommunity.org/show_bug.cgi?id=3506 Helix Player now has support for U-Law and A-Law AU audio files. * wvffplin.cpp requires SimplePayloadFormat https://bugs.helixcommunity.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2440 Previously Helix Player was unable to play back uncompressed audio because a portion of this code was contained in a non-GPL library. This code has been moved so that WAV and PCM files now work. * Chained Ogg support has been added. * Some memory leaks have been fixed. * Core dump when given illegal options after "-e" or "-c" has been fixed. * One known Xerror on Sparc has been fixed. * The output of -h option has been changed from 'hxplayer' to 'realplay' Known Issues * If you are having problems playing back media and are behind a proxy you can try using rtsp transport via http only (go to transports pane in prefs, select "use specified transport" and click "configure rtsp." Then uncheck "attempt multicast," "attempt udp," and "attempt tcp.") * Context Menu might not work while managing favorites with older GTK versions. * If RealPlayer 8 is installed on the system (via rpm) the RealPlayer 10 rpm does not remove RP8 before installing RP10. This means that RP8 and RP10 coexist on the same system. In the event that this configuration results in any problems with the embedded player (plugin) please delete the file rpnp.so from your mozilla plugins directory. (issue #2678) * Some content encoded in RealAudio 3 fails to play. Multimedia content that uses RA3 as the audio codec will still play without audio. RA3 has been deprecated. * Player does not play gnome-vfs URI's (smb://). Workaround is to mount the samba share using smbmount etc (issue #2269). * Alsa and esound drivers are not included in this build The OSS device used for playback can be set using the AUDIO environment variable. eg export AUDIO=/dev/dsp2 * See the Helix Player bug tracker for a list of the latest issues that affect the player. * The value of the UDPPort preference, if used, needs to be set as a range, for example: UseUDPPort=1 UDPPort=7000-7010 Setting it to a single number will result in a player crash. * Multiple instances of Real Player result in a hang of second instance when you start up Realplayer from menu or from command line. You can use "-n" option to start up multiple Players. * If you click "General", "FAQ", etc. under help menu you probably get error "Couldn't display...", and then the file browser is launched. To solve this problem you can specify the location of web browser in Realplayer preference->General, Realplayer will launch web browser instead of file browser and go to the specified document on internet if you already set the proxy. * Garble messages displayed when executing realplay ?-help in gnome-terminal with zh_CN/zh_TW/ja locale. To solve this problem, use UTF-8 locale instead in gnome-terminal. * Realplayer for Solaris has been given the L10N waiver for Swedish.
