it looks like both quicktime and real register for the application/smil mime type... I'm not sure mozilla can do much about that... maybe you can configure the quicktime plugin not to play SMIL files.

Hi cbiesinger (1) I looked up Quicktime Properties -- Every format was unchecked, except for only one, "QuickTime Movies" ("mov") (2) I loooked up Mozilla's Helpers -- There was nothing for "application/smil" ... So, I entered one that points to the Realplayer ... ... Now, the immense http://site/xxxxx.smil is working, with Mozilla properly loading and starting Realplayer. Thank you very much for your successful help ! Michel PS -- When CSpan switched to SMIL for their archives, it would have been nice if they would have added a warning or notice on their webpage!!! (For years, they had been using RAM)
good to hear that it works for you now. closing this bug.
