MPlayer is probably your best bet for a all-around *nix movie player. For Real Audio, you can get an XMMS plugin for it (don't remember where). Quicktime I'm not so sure about.

Quicktime never worked for me in Linux.

RealPlayer8 is good for the video--try Xine as well.

XMMS will take care of all your mp3 needs.

Quicktime is frustrating, I could never get it (or find it) for Linux

Thanks, do-guh-new. That's pretty reasonable and lots of websites are using Quicktime (only) now.

Mplayer has support for realaudio/media if you install the linux version of RealPlayer 8.Add the V9 codec upgrade too and mplayer will use them.It also has support for quicktime which I haven't had the chance to use yet.

For the most part, you can play .mov (quicktime) movies in mplayer with just using the win32 codecs. There are as well quicktime specific codecs you can use, check out google.com/linux for a bit more info on getting/installing these.

Cool

you don't need to get any extra divx codecs for player, comes with 'em in ffmpeg's libavcodec
