LinuxPR: XMMS supports RealAudio format

Jun 19, 2001, 17:57 (6 Talkback[s])
"4Front Technologies is happy to announce the release of the RealAudio plugin for X MultiMedia System.

The RealAudio plugin will allow XMMS users to playback audio on Linux and other UNIX operating systems and will enable users to add effects such as QSound iQ or Spatializer StreamFX to the RealAudio stream. Currently QSound iQ is only available in the Windows version of RealPlayer8. With the ability to add effects and view graphical visualization of the RealAudio stream, XMMS now provides a more enhanced RealAudio player than the standard UNIX player that Real Networks distributes.

The plugin is released with source code under GPL. However, it requires the RealAudio SDK and the RealPlayer8 to be downloaded and installed from Real Network's website. The binary distributions only require the RealPlayer to be downloaded and installed from Real Networks's website at http://www.real.com."
