RealAudio/RealPLayer can mainly be used as a helper app, and on occasion as a
plug-in. However I have generally found it tedious to get installed and
It sounds like you have installed it from Win-OS2. I would first check
Netscape and see if it is listed as a plug-in. From the menu-bar help>about
plug-ins. If you see RA listed there you are off to a pretty good start.
From that point go to some sites that use RA and give it a try. You will
likely see Netscape try to start using RA as a helper. It only works as a
plug-in for a lesser file type RPM, for the more common RA, RAM it will run
as a helper.
You will probably start getting various error messages when you try to open
it as a helper. Two things to check are that your autoexec.bat is correctly
configured to use windows tcp/ip apps and that RA is using only TCP for
transport (Check that under preferences for RA). Good luck and plan on
spending some time.
