RealPlayer has some of it's own library (.so) files that usually end up in
/usr/lib/Real or something like that.  Try running the version that says the
file compression is not supported, but first run

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/path/to/rvplayer/libraries

and tell me if that gets it to work..

I've already contacted Real about the problem, but I don't expect a reply for at
least a week..
