Description

16 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030228
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.4a) Gecko/20030228

Assorted plugin types do not work in later Mozilla builds (or some combination
of RealPlayer versions) (I dont know when the breaking point was). Example types
used by Real: .rm .ram .rpm 

All of these types work in IE and some work in the NS7 trunk; some also worked
(.rpm) in earlier Moz builds as stated previously.
(NOTE: the media HREFs themselves are invalid (404) in the sample URL but should
still invoke the helper app)

FYI, my Realplayer build number is 6.0.11.853.

Also, on the 'Helper Applications' -> 'Edit' -> 'Extention' input, what should
the separator be (space, semicolon, comma) for multiple entries, and could that
be indicated on that dialog?

I will BCC the the dev guys at Real on this as well so that they may (at their
discretion) collaberate.

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.load given URL in various browser/builds.
2.note variations on plugin intialization.


Actual Results:  
-No plugin intializes at all in Feb of Mar 2003 Moz builds.
-Only type .rpm initializes in  'Gecko/20020823 Netscape/7.0'.
-All render in IE.
-No plugin intializes at all in NS4x.


Expected Results:  
If the fix for this merely involves adding types to the Helper Application
dialog, this information may still be needed by the Real installer-application's
creators?. However, I have tried assorted combination of settings there already
without success.

Resolved. Solution is to always add the type attribute
(type="audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin" in this case) to the EMBED tag.
