    Yes and no. There is a realplayer package available that will use the
    version from real.com and install it. This way the program will be known
    to the package management. However, if I remember correctly, you have to
    download it first. This deb is also not available in the standard
    distribution (at least not in stable). If you use stable, you can get it
    from marillat.free.fr. Add the following line to your sources.list:

    deb [url]http://marillat.free.fr[/url] stable main

    Please note that recent versions of mplayer can also be used to play this
    type of content. If you install the mplayer-mozilla package additionally
    (mplayer and mplayer-mozilla are available on the same server as
    realplayer), you can use mplayer in your browser instead of Realplayer.

    apt-get install realplayer

    In fact, this is a package that installs the .rpm from Real, as they
    don't allow redistribution of their software.

    I'm running Woody + backports. I got this one from:

    deb [url]http://marillat.free.fr[/url] stable main

    There is other multimedia stuff there. You can try seaching
    [url]www.apt-get.org[/url] for listings of add-ons for Debian.

    There are instructions in the package. It worked for me.

    Cheers,
    Bret

    If only this were true... in my experience, you need both mplayer and
    xine. Both have their problems and can't play certain RM files.

    And before I get even more emails about this: looks like the realplayer
    package has also been removed from Sid.

    Yes, really. 'apt-cache show' is not a reliable indicator; check
    /etc/apt/sources.list.
