    I cannot get the audio to play on this page:

    http://www.mlive.com/lions/audio.ssf

    I have Real Player installed and did some searches on moving the Real plugins to the plugin folder (using Firefox) but all I get is the screen attached and no audio.

    I think you have a problem other than the plugin -- looking at your screen, the controls are there, which I would guess means the plugin has loaded. This site works for me in Safari, FWIW, as well as in DPA2. How did you install RealPlayer? You shouldn't really have to do anything special. Perhaps re-download it and run the installer again?

    I know that these plug-ins are frustrating on Macs, sometimes, though. But AFAIK, I didn't really do anything to get FF to work with the plug in. Well, if I did, and I remember, I will come back and say. :eek:

    Used Safari played fine for me on a Dial up connection.

    Hmm, I guess I'll just keep trying. I just got a Mac Mini and this is the first time I've tried to get Real audio to play on it.

    Got it working. I dragged the app from the App folder, then did a spotlight search for "Real Player" and deleted all those files that were related to it. I must have tried something that left some other stuff out there.

    Glad it worked! :)

    And don't worry...plug-ins are one of the most frustrating things...most other things are not like that.

    Welcome to Mac world! :)
