RealPlayer - Lagging / Not Responding?

Hi all.

A problem occured when RealPlayer is used. Playback of video and mp3 files seems lagging and sometimes it appears to be non-responding.

RealPlayer (gold) is installed on SUSE 9.2 Professional. Same problem goes to previous Fedora Core system.

Your help is appreciated, Thanks in advance.

PS: Please forgive me if similar questions have been asked. Just didn't manage to find out among 200 matches.

Lightbulb For SuSE users

Please read here ...

After done that you should be able to watch .rm .ram ... inside MPLAYER - XINE

Advanced :
and even goto a console .. and

copy link location out of your browser (sometimes page source)

wget "thatadress"

less "that file"

copy the link name out of it ...

and then
mplayer --dumpstream rtsp:// ....

will give you a stream.dump file --- rename that to "something else".rm

watch in xine or mplayer

Thanks guys for the advice.

I have tried installing MPlayer on FC4 Test but failed. It required user to upgrade/downgrade their GCC. So my questions are...

(1) Is there any other way to play RealMedia files in other players such as Totem and Kaffeine?
(2) Could anyone suggest a codec package in order to play RealMedia in aforementioned players?

Thanks in advance!

PS: FC4 + newbie, situation over here.
