I used to run into this a lot more, fortunately sites that use Real Media's
proprietary player are dwindling. There is a free, non-FOSS replacement
called Helix that runs in Linux, but only on files that have been downloaded
to the local machine. There is apparently a Firefox plug-in, but I could
never get it working right.
Best of luck to you.
