"Real Audio" help no longer needed

Item posted by toby cabot <toby> on Fri 31 Mar 2006 04:25:29 PM UTC.

Based on a volunteer query I looked into current support for the proprietary "Real Audio" format in Free Software. According to Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RealAudio) at least one GPL program (MPlayer) is capable of playing many "Real Audio" files, so I'm going to close this item and recommend that if volunteers are interested in helping GNU with media they should help with the GNASH project (http://www.gnu.org/software/gnash/) instead.

I believe they're using a LGPL codec from FFMpeg's libavcodec library.
