[MPlayer-users] mplayer rc3 and realmedia

It is said, that mplayer supports realvideo files of all formats and I could not find any notes about problems with those files. So I am asking if I really am the only one out there that is not able to use mplayer for many rms...

I'm using mandrake (8.2 and 9.0 with GATOS-Ati and nvidia gforce on two different systems) mplayer 90r1, r2, r3 and tried it out with rp9-codecs, a full rp8 and a full realOne installation with its codecs. The video output is good, forceidx works too for many smaller rms. But on most rm-files I tried mplayer does a bad job synchronizing video and audio and there was no way (for me) to fix that. I tried all possible ao and vo options, autosync, delaying and so on but nothing worked so far.

Am I doing something wrong or is this a known problem with realmediafiles? As I already said I could not find any hint pointing to this problem on the net. Just a few friends from the Unix-Ag of our university who confirmed many problems with realvideos, considering it unusable with mplayer for most files. The files work well with the original realplayers btw. (but I really don't like them, mplayer is way better)

If the problem is unknown I could send some clips with problems.

Greetings, Jones
