Select View/Preferences... from your menus.
Go to the Performance tab (see Performance Preferences).
Find Video card compatibility at the bottom of the tab.
Deselect (uncheck) Use optimized video display.
Click OK.
Close RealPlayer and restart it. (If you have StartCenter running, you will need to close this as well to fully restart RealPlayer. To close StartCenter, right-click on the StartCenter icon and select Close StartCenter. StartCenter will restart when you launch your Player again).
Attempt to play the video again.
