In K(Ubuntu) realplay is the package from the following source(add it to
your list) - it installed but I haven't tested it much. What also worked
was downloading the .bin from realplayer.com and using I think fakeroot
to build a deb that you can install using the package system(as opposed
to running it from just the bin)

## CANONICAL COMMERCIAL REPOSITORY (Hosted on Canonical servers, not Ubuntu
## servers. RealPlayer10, Opera and more to come.)
deb http://archive.canonical.com/ubuntu dapper-commercial main

Acrobat(acroread) is in and seem to work fine, even in
This appears to be in the multi-verse.

See this page for more details http://ubuntuguide.org/wiki/Dapper, I
think the realplay is likely to work on Debian from the source above.
