A friend of mine headed up the video division at Real for a long time and
asked me several times about releasing their RTSP code for general use.
Did this ever happen?  If so, it would probably be feasible to write a
tty version of RealPlayer, and just have it use the codecs from the
RealPlayer distribution.

I've actually wanted to do something like that for a while.  The beta
RealPlayer for linux REALLY sucks right now.
