Mozilla 1.2/realplay problems

Hi. I seem to be having problems with Mozilla 1.2 (as standard on redhat 9) and the realplay plugin. Even though I have installed in my /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins directory, the permissions are set correctly, etc., it just doesn't want to play back embedded media.

E.g. I can't play back any of the clips on:

My computer at home (also rh9 and moz 1.2) has some difficulties (e.g. playback of bbc radio seems to stop after a time), but does much better than my work machine.

Anyone have any hints? Anyone have success with the clips on the above link?

Thanks in anticipation,

Although I don't know how to fix your problem directly, Mozilla is now at 1.5. I would recommend that you upgrade as the problem may fix itself.

The RealPlayer plugin doesn't work with a gcc3-compiled Mozilla. There is an unsupported workaround, see Bug 213234, comment 3.
