Real Audio on Linux

Is there a Linux app that can play Real Audio streaming files etc?
I know MPlayer does it but it does seem like overkill for my humble requirements, i.e being able to play net radio on RA.

Any pointers will be appreciated!

Realplayer 8 does it for me but it's a bit old. I don't know if they still offer it for download

RealPlayer 8

Try RealPlayer8 . I downloaded it yesterday and I'm sitting here listening to Radio4. If you install it and then copy the file into mozilla plugins folder it seems to work a treat.

A much nicer looking player.
Plays the newer .rmvb which realplayer 8 will not.
