I just tested a *.ram file with VLC, after opening the file in Real Player Gold.
No luck. Real keeps it stuff extremely proprietary.
Also, Ubuntu wants to default real media files to Totem, that Totem doesn't play them either.
I have no problems with Real Player on Linux. It's a variant on the Helix player and it doesn't do all the nasty stuff that Real does on Windows, such as start hidden processes, hide executables in places they don't belong, and keep trying to phone home to Seattle.
