Actually I do, if I can't get Real streams to play in Totem —
RealPlayer's UI is actually very good. (And I'd rather use a
closed-source program with a decent UI than an open-source one with an
awful UI, all else being equal.)

Ah, I thought installing Helix would also install all of the codecs it
requires to decode the formats it claims to be able decode.
I've tried replacing totem-gstreamer with totem-xine and adding
libxine1-plugins; when launching the stream in Totem I get:
“Totem could not play
A problem occurred while loading a library or a decoder (cook.so).”
