RealPlayer

I've installed RealPlayer, and read the posts on here about making it working with Firefox, but whenever I click on a real player link the realplayer comes up and then just goes blank as attached.

Has anybody else seen this or knows how to fix it ? Any help,

Thanks

Sigh! Yep, see it all the time, been through trying to see if there's a fix but no luck. Just have to click on the 'Open in stand alone player' link.

Is that realplayer video? I've seen this. It seems to be a conflict between mplayer and realplayer, at least in my case. I guess if you 'Open in stand alone player' you get mplayer, not realplayer?

You could try closing firefox, 'touch'ing the mplayerplug* or nphelix.* files in /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ and trying again. This will change which plugins firefox gives priority to (the set with the most recent timestamp iirc). You might find a combination that works better, but if not there's always the standalone player option.

There are mplayerplug-ins that contain a RealPlayer 9 compatible plugin for Firefox but the one I use doesn't.

Thanks,
If I open in standalone mode then I get realplayer and everything works fine so I know the stream is alright and realplayer is alright. It just appears that the plugin is not ?

At least I know I'm not the only one, although it did work some time ago....

I'm fed up with RealPlayer anyway, the picture quality isn't that great either. I just took a look at the Daily Telegraph's site and their streaming audio/video uses Flash. It's much better than the BBC's video quality.
