order for you to see and hear the live webcasts of concerts
at New Trier High School, it is necessary to download and install
Step 1: Check Your System
you're not sure if you already have RealPlayer, click the
"Start" button on your taskbar, slide the cursor to
the "Find" option and select "files" or
"folders." Then type in "RealPlayer" and
hit return. If you're already equipped, the software should
appear in a window.
Step 2: Downloading
Getting a RealPlayer is relatively easy
and involves two phases: download and installation.
First, bring up the Progressive
Networks' Real.com site and select the software version that you desire.
Step 3: Do I Have To Pay $29.99?
There is no cost for most versions, and
we suggest the RealPlayer
8 Basic option because it's free and it's one of the
latest off the factory lines. Simply click the "RealPlayer
8 Basic" link below and fill out the form to download a copy.
NOTE: They keep changing where the free
link is, so you may have to search it out.
Don't choose the "RealPlayer
Plus" unless you want to pay $29.99.
Step 4: Saving The Download
We recommend that you save RealPlayer
software to your computer desktop initially, because it's
easier to find. Once it's there, close your browser (Netscape,
Internet Explorer). Then double-click on the RealPlayer icon
and follow the instructions that appear. It's best to allow
your computer to choose its own default directory to store
Once installed, head back to the option
of your choice -- and play!
Once you have downloaded
RealPlayer, we suggest that you click on the test link
below which is a video of New Trier Jazz Ensemble I in concert. It should automatically
launch RealPlayer and you should see the RealPlayer
play screen. It will then
take some time to download data, followed by audio and video. It this does not happen, then your
RealPlayer is not setup properly.
