If you enable realmedia support in the plugin AND real media in mplayer the
real streams will play. See the webpage for how to do this.
2.40 will not play the QT versions due to a limitation in mplayer. The plug-in
code that has been fixed in CVS to work around this. This fix also corrects
many other sites.
mplayer will not play the streaming Window Media from that site so the plug-in
can't help there.
