I've downloaded the .bin installer about 5 times, each time the md5sum comes out to e31382279a8b4d21534be9c3d687424f , which is different than the README. This happened before, perhaps it was uploaded incorrectly.

Looks like it needs some work
Tried downloading it multiple times...

[root@thecheat xchat]# ./realplay-0.4.0.186-linux-2.2-libc6-gcc32-i586.bin

Extracting files for RealPlayer installation.......

xxextract.tmp: Data integrity error when decompressing.

Input file = (stdin), output file = (stdout)

It is possible that the compressed file(s) have become corrupted.

You can use the -tvv option to test integrity of such files.

You can use the `bzip2recover' program to attempt to recover

data from undamaged sections of corrupted files.

tar: Unexpected EOF in archive

tar: Unexpected EOF in archive

tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

Helix Player w/RealVideo is now RealPlayer (again)
We previously included RealAudio, RealVideo, and other RealNetworks' proprietary components as part of Helix Player. This has now changed:


The Helix Player 1.0 is the completely dual licensed, both open source (RPSL) and commercial community source (RCSL), media player and thus contain no non-open source components. It plays open source formats, like Ogg Vorbis and Theora (http://www.xiph.org) and SMIL 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/AudioVideo).


The RealPlayer 10 (http://freshmeat.net/projects/realplayer) for Linux builds on top of the Helix Player and will include RealAudio, RealVideo, MP3, Macromedia Flash, MPEG-4(fee-based) and other non-open source components.


See the Helix Player vs. RealPlayer FAQ for more details on this.
