RealPlayer for 64 bit Linux

This is quick note to myself as I keep forgetting it.

The location to download latest nightly builds for RealPlayer that includes a x86_64 version for Linux is here.

For x86_64 Linux choose the version tagged linux-2.6-glibc23-amd64.

How do i install the 64 bit Real player on Debian linux?

The contents of the archive you will download is just a file named libflashplayer.so.

Just place it on a directory of your choice -- mine is in /opt/flashplayer -- and then link the ~/.mozilla/plugins/libflashplayer.so to the extracted file.

No Athanassios, i'm referring to the 64 bit Realplayer that your post has a link to the website for Realplayer 64 bit for linux...

Sorry, mixed up my posts and got carried away :-)

Anyway RealPlayer does not require any setup at all. Just untar the archive you 'll download into a directory of your choice and -- again mine is in /opt/RealPlayer -- and run realplay.
