I have trying to find a way to play Realplayer (.rm) files in Fedora for a few weeks. I never had much luck getting the Helix player working.

A easy solution I found was to install xine and then to download and copy the Real 9 codecs files ti /usr/lib/win32 directory. Xine should start playing Realplayer files perfectly.

You can find the realplayer codec for linux at www.real.com or do a Google search.

Thanks for the tip Mike. If you 'd still like to give Helix another go, did you try the howto here? :

This worked without any troubles for me.

I did try that, and it kept core dumping. I think the instruction are out of date, I can't find hxplay-linux-2.2-libc6-gcc32-i586.tar.gz any where at the Helix web site.

You can now get pre-built rpms for HelixPlayer. See this:
