Still plugins... Realplayer & Firefox

I have searched all over the web and this forum, and still am unsuccessful at installing the realplayer plugin for firefox 0.9.
Some say it works, others say it doesn't... can anyone clarify how to install this with firefox.

I installed RP8 with the latest codecs. It works as a stand alone application, and as a plugin in Mozilla, but no success with firefox.

I am running Mandrake 10, have created symbolic links to and in the .../firefox/plugins folder...

Help, please...

Check out this one:

First install mplayer with realplayer codecs installed. And then follow the instruction on the site. Very nice project.

Sorry I didn't read the 'Firefox' thing. I think you can try copying the mplayer plugins from respective directory in Mozilla to the ones in Firefox.
