Here are the entries that I'm using, seems to spawn things just fine (I
haven't tried this on any RealPlayer files using 2.8.1 yet, but it worked


audio/x-pn-realaudio            ram
audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin     rpm
audio/x-realaudio               ra


audio/x-pn-realaudio;/usr/local/bin/rvplayer %s
# this next line might not be necessary, I just thought of adding it
audio/x-realaudio;/usr/local/bin/rvplayer %s

I'm sure it could also be done by using an EXTERNAL on the RealAudio
protocol (which is pnm: if I remember correctly)...
