I've tried searching for this on the forum and couldn't find anything, so apologies if it's here and I just missed it...

I've been having an issue with Real Player converting video files for iTunes/iPods. Sometimes, the files, such as the one below, become audio only files (MP4s, I think) when Real Play readies them to be converted.

I've tried downloading the proper codecs, as outlines in the FAQs, but it didn't seem to make a difference.

The above file is just an example, this has happened with quite a few other files that I've tried to convert (ones from You Tube work fine, it's when I download files from other sites that RP seems to fail me). RP is also the program that automatically opens & runs the files as well as the program that W7 automatically uses for downloading video clips.

Any suggestions on how to get these files to convert properly?
