Make Real video streams play in Safari browser windows
Authored by: Art70 on Jul 11, '06 01:43:51PM
I've found a site that freely distributes a point and click / one step download that makes Real Player have full functionality in Safari.

The short and sweet is, just go to "The Big Dig" web site:

  1. click on the Multimedia and Publications menu choice,
  2. then choose Video & Animation option
  3. then try to watch the Underground Drive

A pop-up will appear describing the failure of your player but then unlike everywhere else I've looked, it prompts you into an easy step by step sequence to correctly download the appropriate plug-in which for me was the:

iPIX Browser Plug-In

Follow that directed sequence and it places the file into the correct folder for you and then everything just works.
