why not just use the better player gxine or xine. these are all writen from the realplayer base 10 years ago. and every upgrade of xine it comes with all the new codecs installed internally insteed of /usr/lib/codecs/ or /usr/lib/win32 upgrade your xine unless you are using a synaptics or debian system but you can still down load and compile your own deb file.kafeen noatun etc all run of the xine lib. so does realplayer for linux.

With Firefox, I've associated all the filetypes to do with realplayer to open with gxine. Now when I go to I get a totem crash message: totem-plugin-viewer-bugreport.txt So I'm still no nearer
