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).
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.
