RealPlayer on Firefox

Issue:

Installed

RealPlayer10GOLD.rpm
compat-libstdc++-33 (as FC4 used gcc4, but realplayer compiled on gcc3)

Add to file: /usr/bin/realplay (to solve conflict w/ scim):

export GTK_IM_MODULE=xim

copied files:

cp /usr/local/RealPlayer/mozilla/nphelix.so /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/plugins/
cp /usr/local/RealPlayer/mozilla/nphelix.xpt /usr/lib/firefox-1.0.7/components/

Start firefox to watch realplayer content, ONLY sound, but no video???

Solution:

open RealPlayer as normal user by #realplay &
select Tools -> Prefereneces -> Hardware, then uncheck XVideo

Tricks:

default of hardware preferences is XVideo!!!

Close Menu
