This is only true for Realvideo/realplayer 5.0 beta The 4.0 player never
came out for anything other than windows and mac. So depending upon how
stable the beta is (haven't used it yet) this might be workable. I am
of course assuming that the 4.0 format is compatible with the 5.0 player.
Also if you use the 5.0 format lots of people will probably have problems
unless everyone upgrades.
