where to put realplayer etc.


Because I normally use REalplayer with Firefox, do I have to put it in the Mozilla Plug in folder, or can I just put it in Media?

thanks

p.s. I kmow I've been asking a lot of questions, but I've been learning a lot from your replies and I'm close to having a GREAT Linux setup

Put it in "Media" where? If it's a realplayer plugin file, which is meant to be used as a browser plugin, then yes you'll probably want to put it in your mozilla's plugin directory (either system-wide or your personal). But your question makes me think it's not a plugin but more (i.e. the whole player package or what?), so could you be more specific?

- Is it plugin/whole player/if you can't tell it surely, where did you download/installed it from so the readers could check it out and see what kind of package it is
- How would you like to use it; as a plugin, as a stand-alone player or what?
- System-wide (for all users) or just for youself?

Thanks for the reply,
I placed it in the plug ins folder and it works fine. I just wasnt sure where it was meant to go.

Thanks again,
Tim
