Hello :-)

I do not post on forums often, usually Google my way out of this. I am using PPC on an ibook G4 1,33 GHz 12"
Been trying to install Realplayer, tried the binairy installer for PPC from the website this builds and the setup runs, but when playing a video it opens and hangs (CPU at 100 %) Tried to recompile Mplayer with the USE flags "real" and "win32codecs", but no succes. Was just wondering if someone has a succesful install of Realplayer or Mplayer to play these files (*.rm) and the steps he or she has taken. Using kernel 2.6.24-gentoo-r3

well I indeed followed the above post and unmasked the real use flag and the win32codecs to be sure, recompiled mplayer and saw that mplayer compiled with the above use flags on. I thought problem solved, unfortunately not :-( the .rm file is playing but audio only. It says it is missing the following

Aangevraagde video codec familie [rv3040] (vfm=realvid) niet beschikbaar (activeer het bij het compileren!)
Aangevraagde video codec familie [rv3040win] (vfm=realvid) niet beschikbaar (activeer het bij het compileren!)
Aangevraagde video codec familie [rv40] (vfm=realvid) niet beschikbaar (activeer het bij het compileren!)
Aangevraagde video codec familie [rv40win] (vfm=realvid) niet beschikbaar (activeer het bij het compileren!)
Aangevraagde video codec familie [rv40mac] (vfm=realvid) niet beschikbaar (activeer het bij het compileren!)
Kan codec voor video format 0x30345652 niet vinden!

Translated means "required codec family [rvxx] not available (activate this when compiling) well it seems that I just did that, open for suggestions :-)

You are on a ppc machine so win32codec is no use for you.
They work only on x86 (and some on amd64) but not ppc
see they are binary packages compiled for a totally different CPU.
Now apparently there as been some progress on a free
replacement so you may check the latest version of mplayer in portage.

Just install latest mplayer 28058 , it has RV40 decoder, I am using it right now and I can play all my .rm media, and it works better and faster. You can't use win32codecs on ppc but lately there is no point at all to use binary codecs when mplayer can handle all formats natively. I am on amd64 and was using amd64codecs, they contain 3 binary codecs for real media, but now that mplayer can handle them they are history ;)
