[ubuntu-uk] Making embedded media work properly

Hi Folks,

I have been reading with interest the various threads which have been
discussing problems with getting embedded media on websites working

This IMO is one of the blockers for switching non tech-savvy people to
Ubuntu. They simply want to click on a realplayer link on the BBC site
and have it running in their browser straight away.

It seems like there are a couple of other sites with issues too (I
think GMTV was mentioned) and I wondered if it'd be worth documenting
sites with issues, and figuring out what changes need to be made to a
system configuration to sort out the problems.

Anyone interested?
