lot of ideas! here are some relevant to your problem:
check the install directory of realplayer, there are scripts that
install it as plugin, mime types etc... you might have to install the
files into different directories but the scripts should make it clear
what to do. If you cannot find the scripts try (if first doesn't work
try second command):
find / -name pluginstall.sh -print
then cd to the directory where the file is and read the Mailcap,
Mime.types, mimeinstall.sh, pluginstall.sh etc...
