Thanks Kevin, that's a good tip. I installed kmplayer and now I can play the 
plugin RealAudio streams on the BBC website.

Only slight problem is that it takes half a minute or more to start playing. 
AFAIR mplayer has a very large default buffer.  Perhaps there is somewhere 
I can reduce the buffer size, without having to recompile it? 

Only the pause button works, not the volume control or step time 
forward/back. I can live with that though.

Anne, the relevant RPMs I have installed (Mandriva 2005LE and various 
contribs) are:

$ rpm -qa|grep -iE 'codec|mplayer'|sort
