That symlink is already in place, and it's not broken, either. And yet 
those videos still won't play in Firefox. I end up starting Realplay as 
a standalone app.

Which brings me to another issue: why can't I add a new file extension 
in order to tell Firefox to use a different plugin?

And why does Firefox use a "Windows Media Player Plug-in"? Or is that 
something I got with the w32codecs package?
