1. Why would I need the windows media player plugin to listen to a Real stream?

2. Which package contains that plugin (I couldn't find it)? I'll gladly try
it (if it's not installed already; I haven't installed/uninstalled any
different plugins than I had in intrepid; maybe I already have it installed)


PS FWIW, I'm running 64-bit. That may or may not make a difference (usually
I'm confident that it doesn't, but browser plugins seem to be the one place
where it often seems to matter).
