Here is example site that works fine for me:

And one that does not:

I can verify both of those work for me, in sid ( I think it's the same realplayer? 8.0.3.421 ). instead of ever changing the permissions of /dev/dsp, I added myself to the 'audio' & 'video' groups

you scould check the rights

(chmod a+rw /dev/dsp)
# ls -la /dev/dsp
crw-rw-rw-    1 root     audio     14,   3 Nov  4  2001 /dev/dsp
#

kenneth@enlil:~$ ls -la /dev/dsp
crw-rw----    1 root     audio     14,   3 Jun 13  2001 /dev/dsp
kenneth@enlil:~$ groups
kenneth adm cdrom audio src video xcdwrite scsi

I didn't try it as root
