After quick google search, it appears the mplayer should be able to play realmedia files x_x. Unfortunately, I'm not going to be able to help you, i'm not sure what to do either. Sorry

Do you have the directory:


I created that dir, downloaded the win32, qt6, qtextras, and rp9
codecs from mplayer and placed all of the codecs in there.

If you are talking about streaming real media from the internet,
you will need a plugin such as "mozplugger" or "MPlayer plugin".
