I've tried vlc a few times but it has never worked for RA. This time it
just says "Nothing to play".

I already have the xine codecs so I tried Kaffeine (I'm not in the US so
no worries there.) It started with an error message: problem with a
codec called, but then proceeded to give me sound but no video.

As I mention in another post, after some tweaking realplay gives me
video but broken sound ...
