*** Description of problem: ***
Since I installed FC5, the video on Realplayer doesn't work. I changed the

Other media players such as mplayer and xine work just fine.

All of these bugs should be fixed in FC6, You could attempt to use the FC6
policy on FC5 or upgrade. Or you could use
audit2allow -M mypolicy -i /var/log/audit/audit.log
and build local customized policy
