Shameless promotion here.

If you install mplayer with the realplayer codecs and get the below link 
working, but you want you see it in the browser do the following.

Get the CVS version of and install it. 
Then in the $(HOME)/.mplayer/mplayerplug-in.conf file (create the file if 
missing) set "enable-real=1" and "rtsp-use-tcp=1", delete 
$(HOME)/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat and restart mozilla and the video should work 
in the browser window. At least it does for me.
