MPlayer plugin & real media files.

Installed mplayer and mplayerplug-in
It works like a champ...
Only problem is I cant seem to use it to play .ram or .rm files from Real Media.
This site says its supported but disabled by default.

MPlayer Media Types Supported
Window Media wmv, avi, asf, wav and asx
QuickTime mov and smil
MPEG Video and Audio mpeg and mp3
Ogg Vorbis ogg
AutoDesk FLI fli and flc
Vivo vivo
Real Player ram and rm (disabled by default)

Can someone help to enable it?

I use mplayer plugin for mp3, wmv, and quicktime files, but not real files. For RealPlayer files, you can use the "free" player for Linux: Version 10 is now available for Linux and it works well. I don't use a realplayer plugin, but have it open realplayer in a separate window.
