Please find attached an updated mplayer-0.90_pre6 ebuild, that adds support for
Realvideo. I added a USE variable named "real" in /etc/make.profile/use.default
(hope thats the right place):

updated mplayer ebuild
same as #6391
*** Bug 6391 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Here goes. Nice Idea, but I think we can do without the USE flag. Rather
just check if the codecs are present, and if so specify the needed ./configure
flag to mplayer. Comments ?
might be a good idea
im not sure about this but you might just be able to tell it about it
that is the path and not have to worry about it that is to check for
anything cause configure might not even check to see if there is files there
"The MPlayer configure script should detect the RealPlayer libraries in the
standard locations of a full installation. If it does not, tell configure where
to look with the --with-reallibdir switch."
1- Make a simlink to the libs installed from where they should be if they where
installed in a standard location, when emergin the real player.(./configure
automatically detects it).
2-pass the "--with-reallibdir" switch to the mplayer ./configure if realplayer
is already installed in the system.
2 is better.
Question now is: where is the standard location ? ;)
well realplayer's codecs are found in /opt/RealPlayer8/Codecs
just point to that path and your set
i was just playing with this some more and see that realplayer8's codecs wont
work for gcc 3 systems it seems missing symbols or somethin so better have a
check to see if gcc 3 is installed cause unless real recompiles realplayer8
under gcc3 its not going to work well for most
I'm using gcc 3.2 with realplayer8 (from portage) and mplayer-0.90_pre8 and have
no problems playing realvideos with real player support patched in. One thing
missing from the ebuild above is a line in the RDEPEND that checks for
realplayer dependency. eg:
real? ( media-video/realplayer )
I second this enhancement. I've been using realplayer codec since
mplayer-0.90_pre6 and I can tell that _pre8 rv support is really solid.
Somebody have the damn URL where you can download rp8 ?
I like my diff better! ;) It's against the pre9 ebuild.. Since
realplayer-support doesn't add any overhead there's no need to make a USE
variable of it IMHO..
If realone is installed it will use /opt/RealPlayer9/Real/Codecs, otherwise if
RealPlayer8 is installed /opt/RealPlayer8/Codecs and otherwise /usr/lib/real so
we can make a symlink there ourselves...
