there are packages for both.

helix player is in debian, whereas real player is on
debian-unofficial.org since it requires a special written license from
Real in order to be legally allowed to distribute it (though, it's
temporarily removed, it will be back when the move of
debian-unofficial.org to debian-restricted.org is done).
