Additional Comments

It performs very sluggish no matter what settings are done to it. Although I really like RealPlayer media players, they are so bloated with extra features (even in free version, even though it doesn't let you use premium features without a SuperPass) that WINE probably has problems moving it all. Also, I kept getting an error saying it couldn't create the RealPlayer Navigatable Browser everytime I tried doing something, but I think that's my fault because of something I did to my wine prefix previously (although it doesn't have any effect on my programs, otherwise I'd wipe it clean).

HowTo / Notes


Installation Instructions for WINE 0.9.59+

Install the program normally.

The program will crash after installation. Use winecfg and add realplay.exe (found under it's install directory) as one of the listed apps. Set the Windows version to XP, and set a DLL override for ole32.dll.

The program should run the best it currently does. No matter what Windows version is set, it won't change performance. A recent machine should be used to run the program, as it has some high performance requirements, and it's laggy to begin with right now.

Installing this over any previous RealPlayer installations (or before downgrading) will render older versions will keep older RealPlayer versions from functioning properly. Create a separate WINE directory to keep it from ruining your main one. This can be done by going to your home directory and renaming the current .wine folder to .wine_backup, then using the wineprefixcreate command in a terminal to make a fresh directory. You can use your old directory again by deleting the one for RealPlayer, and renaming your old directory .wine again.
