Free-Codecs.com : QuickTime Alternative 3.0.1 : QuickTime Alternative will allow you to play QuickTime files (.mov, .qt and other extensions) without having to install the official QuickTime Player.

Free-Codecs.com :: Download Real Alternative 2.0.1 : Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer/RealOne Player

Real and Quicktime without all the extra garbage. Been using both for a long time without any problems.
Does the quictime alternative include a plug-in?

About real alternative - since OP wants only codecs not additional player, he should download and install Lite version from: Free-Codecs.com :: Download Real Alternative 2.0.1 : Real Alternative will allow you to play RealMedia files without having to install RealPlayer/RealOne Player
Works like a charm here.
