Hi,

does anyone know abaout a RealPlayer 8.x available for Debian/Alpha?
On real.com's Download Site there's only a 7.x for Debian/Alpha but a
8.x for RedHat/Alpha. Unfortunately the RedHat "Installer" quits with a
Segmentation Fault under Debian (why? is AlphaLinux != AlphaLinux ???).
Are there any OpenSource alternatives for RealPlayer?

Thanks.

Try MPlayer, www.mplayerhq.hu

Download source and codecs for RP8/Alpha, works fine.

Is it working now? Last I tried it on an Alpha I got an instantaneous
segmentation fault caused by bad programming style. I started fixing
the bugs, but found out it was easier to write a new player from
scratch.

I tested it with few streams and it played them.
Didn't get segfaults or anything problem.

And I didn't tried it with gcc 2.95.x, only gcc3.3.1.
Debian Unstable.

The compiler version isn't important. I remember seeing several cases
of pointer to int casts and back. Several of these were in the
realvideo code. Another one caused segfault if I tried to change the
volume.
