hi all,

I have created a Smil 2.0 presentation that contains a Realpix file, a
realtext file  and a video .rm.
If I play this presentation with RealPlayer 10.0.1G OLD on linux it works
well, on the other the same presentation with RealPlayer 10.5 on WINDOWS
doesn't work.
On windows, the presentation starts well, but I have problems:
1) in moving the timeline
2) with link in realtext that point at particular time, with "command:seek" 
in both cases the presentation remains in "loading" state...for ever.

I have also tried to make some different combination:
1) realtext and video .rm: OK, it plays
2) realpix and video .rm : OK, it plays
3) realpix and realtext: NO , it remains in LOADING state when I try to move
the timeline on just click on links!!!

any ideas?
Is it a plugin problem of the realplayer version for windows?where can I
download other plugin?
why on linux all works well?!?!?

At the end I have attached my three files.

Best regards
Serena Alessandrini
