Build Identifier: 

The plugincheck reports only one of two RealPlayer plugins:
(1) RealPlayer(tm) G2 LiveConnect-Enabled Plug-In (32-bit) 6.0.12.450
    This is not shown by the plugincheck, presumably because it belongs to (2).
(2) RealPlayer Version Plugin 6.0.12.448
    This is shown as unknown with a research button.

My research led me to reinstall the latest "Real Aternative Lite 2.0.2"
(2010-02-19) from http://www.free-codecs.com/download/real_alternative_lite.htm
The same link is recommended in http://kb.mozillazine.org/RealPlayer
as "Real Alternative". Therefore I think the plugincheck should recognize
this popular alternative of the horrible RealPlayer. Also see

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
unknown plugin

Expected Results:  
latest real alternative plugin
