It may be worth checking the Mplayerplugins. There are loads of them, 
including one ending in .rm, which is the realmedia one, and is an earlier 
version of realplayer.

I'm still using FC2, and Mplayerplugins arn't automatically set up in Firefox. 
I have to link to the ones I want to use. I have realplayer10GOLD.bin 
installed, and can see video output, but because I'm on dialup it's 
continually buffering because of lack of bandwidth.

I'd suggest removing Mplayerplugins realmedia plugin, then reopen Firefox, 
type "about:plugins" (without the double quotes), and see which plugins are 
showing. You should see just one for realplayer10GOLD. Then try the site 
again.

Nigel.
