Don't know, but I did find an SDK that might be of use:

http://www.realnetworks.com/devzone/tools/index.html
http://proforma.real.com/rn/misc/g2sdk/index.html

I'm going to download it now.  I really want to listen to the BBC and WFBQ,
and realplayer has to rebuffer every 3 seconds for some reason (and this is
on a 128k ISDN connection) and sounds ridiculously choppy.

The SDK mentioned above comes with samples/intermed/testplay/ that says:

/****************************************************************************
 * 
 *  Example client:
 *  
 *  This is an example client running without a graphical user interface.
 *
 *  It could be used as:
 *    - Sample source to develop a customized RMA client.
 *    - A testing tool for plugins.
 *
 */ 

Might be a good place to start.... I can get it to compile but it doesn't
actually play any audio.  I don't know if it's just to test out the MIME
stuff and isn't supposed to, or if something is just wrong.
