Surely Firefox is just opening realplayer, right? So how about:
ln -s mplayer realplayer
Or if realplayer expects different arguments/format of arguments, write
a small wrapper script that converts over to mplayer and calls it would
be my guess. Shouldn't take more than a few lines, but I've not got any
way of playing with audio on FreeBSD whatsoever here right now.
