Installing Real Player Gold .Bin file on Mandriva 2008


Installing Real Player Gold .Bin file on Mandriva 2008

Here is how you install RealPlayer10 Gold .bin sound codecs to hear mpeg4 sound on Real Player.

To make it executable 'chmod u+x <and the filename here>' (without brackets.)

example: # chmod u+x RealPlayer10Gold.bin

To run it './<and the filename here, no space between the ./>'

example: # ./RealPlayer10Gold.bin


I am trying to figure out how I can view the video on Real Player Gold 10, I can hear the sound but not the video. With Kaffine I can see the video, but no sound.

I am pulling my hair out, any tips....?

Have you tried chmod +x (i.e. without u)?

No I ended up installing "SMPLAYER" Mplayer off this site:

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html

"MPlayer-1.0rc2.tar.bz2" from USA site

1) unpack tarball
2) ./configure
3) make install


it took a long time to compile, about 30 minutes, but its great and it plays everything....

I don't know whether it's the x that makes the difference but, yes, realplayer is working for me (on Mandriva 2008, that is). The issues you are reporting would seem to indicate permission issues. Does it work better if you launch it as root?

And yes, I use SMPlayer too, by the way. It's essentially Mplayer but with an enhanced and more user-friendly GUI. But is it because you are using an older version that you have to find these things yourself? 2008 has both mplayer ans smplayer in its repositories.

I tried to redue without the "u" and I could not get it to go.

Here is what I get:

[root@localhost stan]# chmod +x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
[root@localhost stan]# ./RealPlayer10Gold.bin
bash: ./RealPlayer10Gold.bin: No such file or directory


Any clues as to what I am doing wrong?

Has anyone ever managed to get this working in Firefox to play little videos such as the ones the BBC put on their website? And, er, if so, how do you do it? I can install and run realplayer, but the browser integration part just freezes and does nothing.

[root@localhost stan]# chmod +x RealPlayer10GOLD.bin
[root@localhost stan]# ./RealPlayer10Gold.bin

spelling issue: GOLD vs Gold. If you use the tab key, your terminal can usually fill in for you once you have typed the first letters. It's very convenient and it prevents typos.

If you do ./Re and then tab to complete the name what happens?

Edit: Ah Jay sussed it!

I can't speak for Mandriva right now - I'd have to reboot - but just checking from Ubuntu, it works fine for me. Well, more or less, the site discovers I have Realplayer but the stream actually plays in mplayer. That's probably one of those plug-in conflicts. There appears to be a hierarchy where one type of video plug-in acts as a default; the other ones won't launch until the default gets into trouble. And since the mplayer plug-in handles about everything, I've hardly ever seen realplayer pop up. If you insist on using realplayer, you'd probably have to make sure that you remove any totem, mplayer, xine and vlc plug-ins first.

Just to clear things up, when I said that a person would have to remove the mplayer, vlc etc. plug-ins in order to run realplayer, I actually meant the realplayer plug-in. There is nothing wrong with having both realplayer and the rest of the lot on your system. It's just that realplayer won't be be able to stream most internet video, although it would still work fine as a standalone player.

you could try real_codecs.rpm from the plf repositories.

Cheers, Glenn

But have you got the plf repositories in your list of sources? Those need to be set up manually because they contain mostly "illegal"/contested materials. You need to go to easyurmpi.org, have it generate a list of sources and then you have to paste them in a terminal one by one.
