Yes, you can install realplayer, because it's available for linux.
But, I suggest to use VLC, you can run almost all multimedia types with it.
Just download:
$sudo apt-get install vlc

Subject: [ubuntu-uk] RealMedia streams (rtsp:) in Gutsy

Is it possible to play RealMedia video streams in Gutsy? I'm thinking 
primarily of the BBC News 24 stream.

Ideally I'd like to play them in Totem, but installing RealPlayer would 
be OK too (they really should call it something else - the name 
"RealPlayer" is tainted by the abomination that is the Windows version).
