Question When clicking RealPlayer link, get general error message


Hello,

I installed RealPlayer 8 with plugins. I put a symlink to a plugin to /usr/local/RealPlayer8/Plugins/rpnp.so in both the mozilla/plugins directory as well as the mozilla-1.x.x/plugins directory. When I click on the realplayer link, I get an error message. Any ideas?

What error message?
And I think you actually have to copy the file alongwith another file named raclass.zip.


Hope this helps...

The error message is the Mozilla Downlaod Manager. It says it does not know how to play files of type "audio/x-pn-realplay". It wants to know if I want to save the stream to disk so I am guessing it does not recognize the stream. I am not sure how to tell Mozilla to use the realplayer plugin when it sees that type of file.

I noticed something else. I went to the menu on Mozilla:

Help --> About Plugins

and it has a listing of the plugin. It says:

rpnp.so

File name: rpnp.so

MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled

audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin RealPlayer Plugin Metafile rpm Yes

OK. For those viewing this post for a solution, I figured it out.

Even though I had RealPlayer 8 installed correctly and the shared object rpnp.so is the correct plugin, I had the wrong entry in the Mozilla Download manager. When the manager comes up, you should click the 'Open With' radio button and select /usr/local/RealPlayer8/realplay in the program text box. Once I did this, Mozilla launched real player which opened the file.

Thanks chem1 for the reply. Looks like you dont need raclass.zip after all though.
