3. I'm unable to play .ram files even after X Codec Pack's installation. What to do?

If the latest version of X Codec Pack didn't solve the problem, here is a workaround:
Open Media Player Classic – HC, then go to Options -> Player -> Formats.
Scroll down to "Real Media (rm ram rmm)". Behind it, you should see "RealMedia". If your "DirectShow" is selected, then click on it and change it to "RealMedia". This is the default setting, so normally you don't need to change anything else.
