media player/realplayer

by nikkie35 / June 18, 2005 7:47 AM PDT

I was using media player that came w/ my computer, but it was playing too fast. So I started using realplayer. At first it played too fast, then I adjusted my audio control. Now If I play something off realplayer it still plays too fast. I don't know what the problem is. I have Microsoft Win ME, system name - OEMCOMPUTER, system model-EZ-2000 and Voyager System Series, system type-X86-based pc,processor-Intel(r)Celeron(tm)processorGenuinelintel-900MHZ, version 4.90.3000 build 3000. Please tell what I did wrong.

Nikkie, Try Adjusting The Hardware Acceleration...
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / June 18, 2005 9:47 AM PDT

Open the Control Panel-Sounds and Audio Devices-Volume tab-"Advanced" button in the "speaker Settings" section, then the "Performance" tab. Move the "Hardware Acceleration" slider back one or two notches.

The link below should also help for those types of issues:

Troubleshooting Audio Playback Issues in Windows Media Player

Hope this helps.

What is too fast ?
by Papa Echo / June 19, 2005 12:29 AM PDT

? Music sounds in a higher tone ?
? Music sounds like The Chipmunks ?
? Too fast - meaning music ends sooner that expected ?

It isn't quite as fast as the chipmuncks, but it is only when i want to hear something from the radio, the cd player works fine. it plays like it's a 33inch record playing on 45. And the sound goes in and out.

Chipmunks? That's a known issue.

The audio driver needs to be found and installed.

Microsoft won't do this for you.
