To refine that comment: I go to the page, and it basically says: "Netscape doesn't know of a plug-in for your plug-in type." (audio/x-pn-realvideo) So it sends me to a page with plug-in descriptions. There are about 176 of them, and they describe only a few. One of them is RealPlayer. This of course isn't the RealPlayer software, which I have, but the RealPlayer plug-in, right? Is that the one I should download? confused...Sally Weirdly, when I uploaded .rm files to my website and
