I've just found the time to get a good read of the list.   Thanks for the 
info, i did try apt mplayer, but it didnt show for me either and Im running 

Did I read correctly when Peter said mplayer doesnt directly support 
realplayer anyway?  If so, will try installing commercial real player 
sometime soon but have had fingers burnt by "free trials" before now - oh 

For what its worth, Mozilla plugins would be nice, things like streaming 
audio/video have this nasty habit of not being save-able to hard disks. the 
quicker they play, all the better in my book.

That reminds me, I don't suppose there is anyway for me to record a 
streaming movie for future viewing is there?  the Real site doesnt suggest 
this is possible.
