    real player plugin in mozilla


    hello all
    i have RH9
    i use the default mozilla browser that came with the installation meaning 1.2.1
    i installed real player 8
    and i have in
    /usr/lib/mozilla-1.2.1/plugins
    these files
    raclass.zip and rpnp.so
    i have also plugger 4( i don't know if this should help)
    when i go to amazon.com and search for a CD and try the music samples
    it always says that i have no plugin for
    audio/x-pn-realaudio mime type
    i tried to make a new mime type in the preferences in mozilla this way
    mime type audio/x-pn-realaudio
    handled by application (i tried both rpnp.so and realplay --i don't know if these are the write files to linki to) from the realplayer8 folder
    (/usr/lib/RealPlayer
    but still when i try to listen to realplayer audio from amazon it tells me that i have no plugin
    for audio/x-pn-realaudio mime type
    can someone help me please
    thanks

    Check in Help->About Plugins that the RealPlayer plugin has been registered correctly.

    and the last one is like this
    rpnp.so
    MIMI type ---------------------------- Description--------------Suffixes-----------Enabled
    audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin----Real player plugin-------rpm---------------yes

    it seams to me like real player plugin and that it is enabled

    It seems that the realplayer plugin made a booboo. It seems that it registered the MIME type audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin while it should be without the last -plugin, right? You could probably change that in the source code, but, hey, RealPlayer is proprietary, isn't it? Oh, how I love proprietary stuff.
