Ahh, but the source code is not open to you.
RealNetworks have been careful to create confusion about this. While
they have made *some* of the interface source code viewable (but none
free), the codec module that is needed to actually play the RealPlayer
audio/video is completely proprietary/closed/hidden/etc.
