For me, nasd has serious lags with video (2-4 seconds is typical).  esd doesn't lag, but does get garbled and doesn't work at all with Realplayer 10.  Realplayer 8 does work with esd.  Sound is a continuing 'thorn in my side'.  I have MPlayer and this regularly crashes Mozilla.  There isn't much happiness at NCS wrt sound/video right now.

As above, it appears that RealPlayer 10 will not work with esd.  Try RP 8 (or maybe 9).
