There actually are:

[ak at cave ak]$ ls /usr/lib/RealPlayer8/Codecs/
14_4.so.6.0  cook.so.6.0  drv1.so.6.0  dspr.so.6.0     rv20.so.6.0  tokr.so.6.0
28_8.so.6.0  ddnt.so.6.0  drv2.so.6.0  rncolor.so.6.0  rv30.so.6.0
atrc.so.6.0  dnet.so.6.0  drv3.so.6.0  rv10.so.6.0     sipr.so.6.0

The problem is how to reverse engineer them and find out what functions
are called with what parameters. But this all makes little sense anyway,
because most real player content is streamed via real's proprietary pnm://
protocol. And there's no equivalent of asfrecorder for real media.
