Firefox Real Player Plugin

A client of mine has a website which has a ".rm" file embedded in it.  I can successfully play this file using say VLC.  

Firefox insists on trying to download the RealPlayer Plugin.   Is there any way I can change that behaviour?  I have identified in a "Real Alternative" codec, which I have downloaded and it is listed in Firefox's Plugin list as Enabled.   Firefox however still insists on the RealPlayer Plugin.

RealPlayer is not installed and I have no wish to install it - Firefox doesn't successfully install it in any case whether it be done automatically or via the manual install option.
VLC has a Firefox plugin (that works).
I've tried QuickTime Alternative some in the past, but never loved it much, because it doesn't work very well or for all cases it would be supposed to.

I suggest to uninstall it, then, if you have VLC installed make sure that the Mozilla plugin is enabled. Once you run Firefox and visit the website with the embedded rm video you should be able to play. If you are not asked to associate the .rm videos with the VLC plugin you can check or change this setting from the Firefox Options (from the Applications tabs)
