Yes. A common install program would be nice. BTW, I'm not alone in failing to get either RealPlayer or Media Player to work. The AOL/Compuserve Netscape Forum (which has a section devoted to Mozilla) has similar problems with streaming video.

The idea that it is not a problem when Real Player runs standalone and not embedded begs the point. Everybody I know of goes to sites like <http://news.yahoo.com> to get news and just try and click on one of the streaming video broadcasts they have there.

PLUS, the idea of having to go to a netscape web site to get plugins that are not optimized for Mozilla is ridiculous.
