Problem with Firefox: SWF File errors


When I find websites running real media, I cannot get the media to run. I have installed Real Player 10, Mplayer, MPlayerplug-in, Flash Player 7, Java Runtime.

The error message is similar to this:
"SWF File error, cannot set piping to start"

SWF files are shockwave files. Unfortunately, there is currently not a free shockwave player for linux. If you purchase crossover office, you should have the ability to play swf files.

Works for me, although I don't get sound.

That is a really nice page with some good tips. Installing real player can be a real pain, but that site gives good instructions.
