How to delete history in Real Player

I am using Real Media Player to play music and videos. The Real Player normally saves the list of recently played media files. But I don't want others to see these files. So, I wish to delete the history of recently played media files in my Real Player. How can I delete history in Real Player ?

Does anyone uses Real Media Player and suggest how to clear history in Real Player ?

Follow this --

Go to C:\System\Data\ and delete the file called "mediaplayer.dat".
You will have to follow the above step each time you want to clear the most recent clips option.

If you dont want to repeat it each time you open your Realplayer movie, find realplayer.dat in C:\System\Data\ and delete that file. Then open your realplayer and Exit.

Re: How to delete history in Real Player

To delete recently played media files and clear history in Real Player, you'll need FExplorer, X-plore or any other File Explorer.

Note - You have to do this everytime you need to clear your recent files list.

1. Open FExplorer and browse to C:\system\data
2. Find the file named "mediaplayer.dat" , delete the file and Exit FExplorer.
3. Next time, when you open your Real Player, there'll be no more recent files listed.
