I did indeed read the directions - which state that mplayer "should
detect the RealPlayer libraries in the standard locations of a full
My problem is that I don't know what that standard location should be,
and that's what I am looking for help with.
I tried copying the realplayer libraries (obtained as suggested in the
docs from RealMedia) to /usr/local/lib, adding said dir to
/etc/ld.so.conf, and running ldconfig, but that didn't cause mplayer to
be able to recognize .rm video files. I'm wondering what other location
I should be trying.
