real player as default player for firefox browser


Sir,
When I tried to listen some classical music from online radio, the Totemplayer showed that it cannot do that due to the absense of some plugins. I saw the extension of the file as .rm. I pasted the location name to real player 10 and again tried. This time I could hear the music. Can I listen music through totem player from internet? I can see movie in totem player during offline. Can I see movies online with totemplayer? Can I make real player as default player in Firefox browser so that I could listen online music directly. Can I see movies through RealPlayer?
Thanks
appunni

Have you installed the realplayer plugin for firefox, or have you just installed the stand alone realplayer? I'm pretty sure that Totem doesn't support .rm or.ram streams. Mplayer does I think though.

real player pluggin

Sir,
I have not installed real player plugin. I just installed from rpm.
I am new in linux. I saw the procedure for installing plugin as given below:

1. Install RealPlayer 10.
2. Copy nphelix.so to your Mozilla plugins directory and nphelix.xpt to your Mozilla components directory.
3. Make sure a symbolic link to the realplay script is in your PATH.
In this I have already completed item no.1.
But I cannot understand the method given in 2 and 3. Please give me a simple, step by step procedure.
Thanks

What linux distribution are you using?? The normal directory for firefox is /usr/lib/firefox, but you can verify this by invoking:
Quote:
whereis firefox
in a terminal. Next you need to find where real play is installed so do
Quote:
whereis realplay
. Now you need to copy nphelix.so into the mozilla plugins directory so login in as root (su - or sudo depending on your distro) and do:
Quote:
cp /path/to/nphelix /usr/lib/firefox/plugins/
Where the /path/to is the path to the realplayer plugin nphelix. Do similar for the nphelix.xpt file, except copy it into /usr/lib/firefox/components/. The symbolic link to Realplayer should be in in your path. If you can start it with realplay in a terminal then it is. This should help.
