    What documentation I can find on mPlayer says that it will play Real format
    video. I've had no success, however.

    mPlayer is the only alternative I've heard of. Has anyone succeeded in
    getting it to play Real video?

    Thanks,

    Yes, at least going through ffmpegX's "Play" in mPlayer option, after
    installing the optional RealLibs components. I'm not aware of what's
    involved in getting mPlayer to access the RealLibs stuff without vlc,
    though.

    Have you seen Real Alternative?

    The Real Alternative package comes with Media Player Classic - a re-write of
    the classic Windows Media Player 6.4 - and should do the job perfectly.

    Windows Media Player Classic & Real Alternative are not much help then.
    (Good solution for a PC though)
