Helix plays Vorbis. You should also be able to use the Helix plugins with 
stock RealOne players. Lately I've been making improvements to the Helix 
Vorbis code so it works better. I'm also fixing some bugs with Icecast 
playback. This is a personal side project of mine so please be patient.
I'm trying to get solid Vorbis playback in Helix as quickly as possible. 

I'm also planning on implementing the current Vorbis RTP draft for use 
with the Helix server. I may also experiment with some ideas I have for 
improving the draft so it can support things like streaming chained 
files and multicast playback.
