Description

17 years ago
The RealOne (version 9 of RealPlayer from real.com) plugin is not working in
Mozilla, nor it is showing up in about:plugins.  When last I tried it about 2 or
3 weeks ago, it worked fine.  It also works in Netscape 6.2.1.

I installed the plugin in Mozilla and a fresh installation of Netscape 6.2.1 by
copying the files nprjplug.dll and nprverplug.dll to the plugins directory and
nppl3260.dll and nppl3260.xpt to the components directory.

about:plugins in Mozilla tells me that nprjplug.dll and nprverplug.dll are
registered.  In Netscape 6.2.1, I see these two plus nppl3260.dll registered as
"audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin, RealPlayer(tm) as Plug-in (*.rpm)" which probably
explains why it is working in Netscape.

This is a fairly recent regression, at least within two or three weeks or so.

Tested with Mozilla trunk build 2002-02-13-03 on Windows 2000.

How do I install RealOne? After 4x installation I could not find those 
nppl3260.* files. Or should I use old ones?

The only way I know is to install Netscape 6 and then install RealOne.  You
should be able to find the files in Netscape's components directory.

reporter, did u refresh ur plugins list after copying the two files? And I doubt
that you need both sets of files( realplayer 8 and realone) just having the
realone files in the plugins folder should work..no? Let me know what you see.

Sorry for the delay in responding.  As to refreshing the plugin list, every time
I copied anything anywhere, I shutdown Mozilla and deleted component.reg.

Putting the plugin in the plugins directory seems to work just fine so I guess
this bug is invalid?  My only concern would be that if the RealOne installer
wants to put the plugin in components for Netscape6, it will want to do the same
thing for Mozilla (assuming it ever recognizes Mozilla in the first place) which
will not work properly.
