You should be able to delete it from the directory that you installed it in. If you chose to create symlinks you also have to remove these manually.

Here is what I tried. I downloaded the rpm file, installed it using "rpm -ivh" and then removed it using "rpm -e" . At least /usr/local/RealPlayer is removed, not sure about the symlinks. Probably the rpm installs the same things as the bin so maybe when uninstalled it'll get rid of what installed by the bin. Where's the syslinks? I want to check whether they're removed too.
