RealPlayer 10 and streaming Media?

Hi I wonder if any of you guys have any experience running realplayer in Linux. I can download a .ram file and open it in realplayer and the stream works ok, but embedded media files that expect realplayer to be avaiable as a plugin do not work.

I followed the instructions on the mozilla plugins page which are namely:

# Install RealPlayer 10.
# Copy to your Mozilla plugins directory and nphelix.xpt to your Mozilla components directory
And after doing this about mozilla plugins reports:

audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin  RealPlayer Plugin Metafile  rpm  Yes
But nonetheless I still can't play any embedded media files with real player 10.

Have any you guys got any hins what I might be doing wrong?
