Check Media Types

Opens your Media Types Preferences to allow you to associate any listed media type with RealPlayer. This is useful when RealPlayer is not launching as expected to play a particular type of media.

Media types that are not currently saved as a default are marked with a bullet to the right of their listing in the dialog.

Check Default RealPlayer

Use to check whether the copy of RealPlayer you are currently using is the default RealPlayer. Because of Mac OS X issues, it is possible to have multiple copies launching from different folders but without any obvious way to determine which program was launched.

Reset RealPlayer
