"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."
