I don't think that realplayer has a pulseaudio plugin.  When you go into 
the configuration
is there an option to select a pulse plugin?  If there isn't, it needs 
to work with alsa directly,
instead of through pulse.  That would be why the request for the default 
sound device failed.
Pulse is holding it.

Try turning off pulse and running again.
