Mozilla + realplay plugin: how to get this work?

The realplayer plugin only works with a linux mozilla binary.

I suggest you use www/plugger, works with native fbsd mozilla. It starts 
realplayer as an application by default, not as a plugin, and honestly, 
this is what you want. Plugins suck for video or audio, it is a bad idea 
IMHO. If you want plugin, you can configure it for that, I believe.

Plugger works by using external programs and open them either in an X 
window inside mozilla,  or just starting them through a forked /bin/sh.

It supports over 50 different mime types, starting different progs. Hence, 
the dependcy list in the port is fairly long, perhaps you can some off if 
you don't want it all...
