I don't think xbmp will play them either since it was made by the same people as xbmc

I am not aware of any, but I have not researched it either.

Check the xbmp forum when the search is back up. I looked into this a while ago and IIRC XBMP (not sure about xbmc) did play some limited subset of RealMedia files. I think it was able to play .rm files that are encoded with several-releases-back version, but none current. Difficulty had to to with Real Player (and Quicktime, and others) relying on Windows .dlls, which are unpublished and thus hard to emulate.

What kind of Realmedia files?
For example, I downloaded a bunch of files with .rmm extensions. They wouldn't play.
I renamed them all with just .rm, and they all played perfectly!
I'm not suggesting that it is just that simple - but just maybe... wink.gif

I can play lots of real media with XBMP. I'm not sure how the support in XBMC is yet for it. Just follow this guide

For XBMC - just rename the files with the .rm extension
