I find that if I download the .ra file, then open it directly in RealPlayer
(instead of clicking on a web link) it works every time. Clicking links,
under 50%. Dunno why, but my workaround works.
Note that .ra files are playlists, not actual audio files.
Note also that on x86, mplayer can play Real files.
