Netscape radio produces Java Script errors and thus does not function.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Enter the site
and launch the radio.  Assuming you do have the real player plugin installed you
should hear the test music.  Now try selecting a channel.  Radio does not work.
Open the window JavaScript Console and you see the following error

Error: parent.frames[1].document.thePlugin.SetSource is not a function
Source File:
Line: 7

Woring with Sun Java
Java(TM) Plug-in 1.4.0-beta-b65

Real Player 8.0 for Linux
Mandrake 8.1, KDE 2.2.2

Actual Results:  Cannot hear the radio despite test music working, ie., the
realplayer is recognised by Mozilla and does work.

Expected Results:  Should hear Netscape Radio.

Radio does work with Netscape 4.7x

Reassigning to Plug-ins. 

I remember that at one point, Real did not have an XPConnect plug-in,
only a LiveConnect one, which is no longer supported by Mozilla.

Could this be another dupe of bug 59935, then?
Or is Real Player 8.0 for Linux scripted via XPConnect now?

I have redhat7.0 and realplayer7.0 plugin which is not xpconnect enable,
I do not have real8.0 plugin to test, but according of this bug most likely it
is not xpcom yet, at least I'm getting the sane js error with 7.0

I think that the reason of the bug is the same as for
bug #105124: java callbacks in ns4xPlugin.cpp are not implemented.
RealPlayer8 plugin invokes method GetJavaPeer and gets NULL.
I found out (by means of 'ps' program)
 that realplayer begins to work but it doesn't
open the file specified in 'src' parameter. I'm not sure
that this dup of #105124 but the reasons of both these bugs look
very similarly.

I think this is a dup of bug 59935 but we may need some help from evangelism.

As a complement,

In Mozilla 1.1 in Conectiva Linux 8.0: Radio@Netscape opens about 4 Real Player
windows and in all but the first window I get a message like this:

 .. Invalid URL protocol. Valid protocols are .......http://...
in the first window nothing happens => no music
In Netscape 7.0 it seems that no error message comes but nothing happens too
(Red Hat 7.2).
In Netscape 4.79 about two or three windows are open with a message like in
Mozilla 1.1 but the first window plays Radio@Netscape very well (Conectiva Linux

Netscape has a site for "Songs and Videos" where Mozilla 1.1 can reproduce with
Real Player 8 very well (Conectiva Linux 8.0)!!!

Warnerbros trailers at don't work as well with Mozilla 1.1.
Error messages of the same type as in Radio@Netscape.
Can't say anything about Netscape 4.79 since warnerbros site doesn't allow N4.79
to get in.
