Realplayer is good for playing audio and video streams, e.g. webradio.

To install RealPlayer for Linux, visit http://www.real.com/linux. You have the choice between an rpm and a deb package. For debian-based distributions you will need the .deb package, for rpm-based distributions you will need the .rpm package.

In this example, we assume you have SUSE Linux 11.3 X64 and you are downloading the rpm package. After downloading it, open a console and install it:

# rpm -ivh Downloads/RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm 
error: Failed dependencies:
        libXv.so.1 is needed by realplay-11.0.2.1744-1.i386

Satisfy the package's dependencies:

linux-noqb:~ # yast -i xorg-x11-libXv-32bit
linux-noqb:~ # rpm -ivh Downloads/RealPlayer11GOLD.rpm
