Using RealPlayer Basic
Now that your RealPlayer Basic installation is done, you can start using it.
To play any video in RealPlayer, just start RealPlayer from the Start Menu or the desktop shortcut and drag the video file into the RealPlayer window.
Alternatively, you could also just right click on the video file and select Open With > Real Player.
You can do the same with your music files.
To access all your multimedia files in your RealPlayer library, just go to the library tab in RealPlayer and click on Scan Disk for Media to search for your files.
Choose the drive which you want to scan and the file types. Click OK and all your multimedia files should now be visible in your RealPlayer Library after the scan completes. The time it takes will depend on your hard drive size.
You can view the files in the Music, Videos, Pictures and Playlists option on the left tab.
To create your own playlists, just click on the Playlists option and then select New Playlist. Select the files in the library that you want to add to the playlist and name it.
You have now successfully installed and set up RealPlayer Basic on your computer. Also check out this list of the Best MP3 and Media Players to get the most out of your files.
