Real Player slow on Linux?
I haven't been using Real Player on Windows, but since I moved to Mandriva I decided its time to install it. I have the last version, but when, for example, listening to radio, the player has (big) problems with repainting, I have such an impression that both the GUI and the player's engine work in the same thread. Even when turning the volume it takes some time to react to my mouse. All other audio and video software (like Amarok and MPlayer) work fine! Besides, the real player doesn't manage to play properly the video files with the ".rmvb" extension. The video frames just freeze sometimes, and then continue playing, it makes me think that the player doesn't have enough 'power' to play the video properly.
The question: Does anyone else experience such problems with repainting and slow video with Real Player??
I found helix but it turned that it supports less formats, for example, the above mentioned '.rmvb' file format.
