I just saw 2 videos from the BBC page above, with realplayer and Mozilla
1.6 --- worked like a charm: I just clicked on the video links, and
realplayer was started, in one case inside a little BBC browser pop-up
window, in the other one externally.

Not being sure what exactly you mean with plugin: But I have this in
Mozilla preferences --> Helper Applications:

MIME Type: audio/x-pn-realaudio
Extension: ram ra rm

I set this stuff up some time ago, so I forgot what I did exactly to get
realplayer working inside Mozilla.

Oh, I just saw this in the ~/.mozilla/plugins folder here: 
-- is the latter the realplayer plugin? ... Sorry, but it must be months
ago I was setting up all this ... :)

Might be that that were some plugin/MIME install settings that
realplayer did itself when I installed it ... don't know.

There's some apps that doesn't work here at times (also perhaps due to
the fact that I simply do not have the time to find out every time what
goes wrong if something doesn't work here).

But realplayer on ppc/Mozilla works. Full stop ... :)
