I can't set the video player to RealPlayer any more, it defaults to Windows Media and is greyed out and won't work.
I'd suggest contacting the BBC since I guess they've changed their detection logic.

BBC say its too expensive to cover all video formats etc.

I tried again, and the selector was once again greyed out for RealPlayer.
Solution for getting RealVideo from bbc.co.uk working
Open the BBC media preferences page (http://www.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/check/player/?prefs=1)
Select Standard and RealPlayer
This allowed me to watch the BBC News 24 live stream with no problems.
