Folks: I am running RealPlayer 10 on a Pentium 166, 80 Mb RAM and OS Windows 98SE. I have Internet on Hi-Speed Lite cable. When I stream audio from a Radio station, I get severe choppiness, even though I exit all programs and only RealPlayer is running. I tried different settings for buffering, timeout, etc., but same result. Would more RAM improve this? Has anyone experienced similar problems? Are there any other settings I should configure for better streaming? RealPlayer takes forever to respond. Thanks for any help.

Your processor may just not be cut out to do that. More RAM might help, you'll never know for sure untill you try.

Assuming that the 166 is the Mhz of your Pentium clock, I will guess that you just don't have enough processing power to keep up with the data stream. 80 MB RAM is also pretty small, and increasing it may help some, but as donnieb6680 says, it's hard to say in advance.
