If it's "checking for updates" then it doesn't know how to play the
file (and typically it won't find an update that tells it how to, I'm
not even certain that feature has been implemented yet). I don't
think RealPlayer can play wmv, you might want to try mplayer or
xine. Some .rm (noteably the ones Amazon uses for clips) are
created using an old realplayer codec that the Linux player
doesn't support.
