Question Playing rm Real Audio files?


Is there a way to play real audio files in Linux? I tried downloading the old Real Player 8 for linux, but it just won't install. It's strange - I downloaded the file, and when I try to install it, either through the software manager GUI or through command line with urpmi, it tells me the rpm file doesn't exist (though i can move the file, copy the file, etc).

Nevermind - I found a player that works, from Helix. They have the Helix player, and a Real Player for Linux. The Real Player worked just fine for me. Here's the link if anyone needs the same thing -

Yeah. Real 10's getting better. You might want to try mplayer with the win32 codecs installed as well. It crashes less than the real player

If you go to easyurpmi and configure yourself some good download sources, you can add plf and contrib mirrors to the list, and you can get mplayer with those codecs already included in the download. It sves a source compile (and there are tons of kewl stuff there as well). Good luck with it too.

Definitely get the Mplayer codecs.
I have win32, qt6, qtextras, and rp9 codecs from Mplayer
and several players can use them, Mplayer, Xine, even Kaboodle!

I have some .rm files that I'm trying to play, nothing works. I have mplayer with the win32 codecs. I also just downloaded RealPlayer 10 and it still won't play them. Any ideas?
