No. RealMedia formats are proprietary, owned by Real. So, unless Real releases one, the answer is no. However, there are ways to convert RM to other video formats that ARE compatable with existing DC players. There was a recent post on this or one of the other boards on the topic. See if you can find it.

actually, someone did used the RealPlayer core for making AVI from RM movies. I dunno if its either legal or that could be made, to use the RM core file, and find a way to decode RM video on DC... still, like I said, it may not be legal since the core of RM isn't open source.
