On MacOS X the easiest thing is probably to install someing like Audio 
Hijack from rogueamoeba.com (non-free software) and use that to record 
the playback from realplayer. That still leaves the encoder problem. I 
don't remember if there's a drag-and-drop Ogg Vorbis encoder tool for 
MacOS. Anyone?

Should be possible to whip up an applescript wrapper for ffmpeg2theora 
if nothing else.


P.S. Sorry this is such a pain. I've very happy to see wikipedia's 
efforts to support and promote free media formats, but our projects are 
just as short of tool authors as yours, it seems.
