    You failed to mention what it is you need it to do...
    The built in iPod software does a decent job of playing music and video which is 1 function of Real Player.
    If your looking for streaming audio/video playing within the safari browser thats another issue.

    Even if Real did make a player for the iPhone, there's no way I would trust them to come anywhere near any hardware I owned.

    If there's a site out there that's still requiring Real, that's pretty disturbing.

    The BBC are going to introduce iPhone compatible live streams later on this year (and iPlayer radio streams). Don't bother with any apps, it's coming.

    That said, it would be nice if someone could create a Real Player app for the app store. Wouldn't integrate with Safari but the Real Helix project *should* make it possible.

    That's what I was thinking. I thought that thing got killed years ago when people got sick of downloading a new version every 2 days. I'm almost as sick of Web sites using Windows Media Player for their video. Since Microsoft hasn't updated that for Mac in about 3 years, you're alienating about 10 percent of the viewership.

    If you're putting video on a Web site, either do it with QuickTime or Flash.
