Question Firefox and RealPlayer10 and Online Music Website

Hi there,

Recently, I upgraded my version of firefox to firefox1.0.4 and also updated my RealPlayer from RP8 to RP10. I followed all the instructions for making a symbollick link with the plguins in firefox. To verify that the plugins exist in firefox, about: plugins does show that the Real Player plugin was installed (shown below).

Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible

File name:
Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible version built with gcc 3.2.0 on Apr 1 2005

From then one, everytime I go onto my usual website for some online music (, the music does not load. The applet just gives out a message of "loading". However, if I go onto the BBc website, I am able to watch and listen to movies/music.

I have tried to read around but have not got any solution as yet. I hope there is someone out there who can help me out with the problem I am currently facing.

Thanks in advance!

There was a big discussion about this on this forum a few days back on this. You can refer it here. I have the same problem browsing songs from Raaga. Try They claim that their IMO player runs well under linux but i haven't had luck with it. However i can listen to most music sites using Mplayer and Mplayerplug-in. Only sites like raaga have some stupid coding which doesn't allow anything else other than windows...atleast thats my experience from trying it several times.


Edit: It would be nice if you include your distro
