I know this is off-topic, but figured someone here would know, particularly
given Xiph's involvement in Helix.
Up till now I've used TRplayer <http://linux-speakup.org/trplayer.html> to
play Realmedia content. This is because, as a Blind person, I've no need
or desire for X11, and TRplayer uses the Realplayer libs without all that X
overhead. but now I would like to play a stream that needs Realplayer 10,
or at least seems to need it.
The stream I tried to play, which is one of many clips on the site, sent a
V3 RAM file which my current version understandably choked on. I tried
extracting the URL and playing it, but it gave a vague, non-specific error
message (not surprising when I'm not really getting the UI it was designed
Ultimately I'm looking for a text-mode interface to the latest Linux player
for Real content, but I'll settle for cludging with XVFB if I have to
(that's what we used to do before TRplayer came along). I'm guessing that
HelixPlayer is probably the go, but this stuff doesn't seem very intuitive.
All help appreciated.
