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."
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?
