Hey everyone


are there any ebuilds for RealPlayer 11 available? If not are there any alternative media players on Gentoo that will play streaming Realmedia?

Maybe mplayer is the best choice.

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Unsupported Software.
Not about getting gentoo installed, so moved here

it's not in the official gentoo as it's a pain to maintain (and full of security bugs). You can find an ebuild here: https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=293327

You can also just install the codecs, see https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=245662

It does, at least if you install the codecs. But many websites which provide streaming realmedia will not work properly with mplayer. You will need realplayer to stream from those websites.
