You neglected Mr Paulson's comment:

   "even the implementations that use mplayer rely on windows dlls"

Certainly mplayer on my PS3 does not play Real streams as it does on  
my Pentium 4 (it simply fails on PS3).

On my distro media-video/realplayer is masked on PPC, and IIRC  
unmasking it leads to an installation failure.

I am obliged to download Real streams on my Pentium and re-encode  
them in another format before I can view them with mplayer on my PS3.  
I would _love_ to hear how to play them directly.
