xmms, realplayer, and plugger

I'm using plugger with galeon.

Few questions:

- When I click on an audio file the entire file is downloaded before xmms
begins to play.  Is there a way to get xmms to start playing before the
download is complete (stream)?

(I noticed on a friends machine running Windows that their player is smart
about downloading just enough to start playing and not overrun the slow
download speed.)

- When I select an audio file with galeon, xmms is started, and galeon
window is blank.  If I click "Back" then playing stops.  It would be nice
if xmms was started and then the browser was not blocked.

- RealPlayer.  I downloaded Realplay (rp8_linux20_libc6_i386_cs2.bin), ran
it and it installed in ~/RealPlayer8/.  Even if I set in /etc/Plugger-4.0:

audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin:rpm:Realaudio-plugin resource locator
        exits nokill: /home/moseley/RealPlayer8/realplay "$file"

I still get messages like:

  Plugger: No approperiate application for type audio/x-pn-realaudio found!

about:plugins does show:

  audio/x-pn-realaudio-plugin Realaudio-plugin resource locator rpm Yes

So I'm not clear what the problem is.
