Question Many video format (such as video/x-ms-asf and video/x-ms-wvx ) does not play?


cnn.com videos does not work, for example. Basically only youtube and flash ads works and many video files too (mpeg4). Otoh many DVDs don't play.

In browser 'about: plugins' says that video/x-ms-asf and video/x-ms-wvx are installed. OToh browser complains that some plugin is missing and it cannot be found

-------------------

Browser is Iceape/Iceweasel. Debian ver is squeeze/sid. Everything should be up-to-date. VLC or XINE cannot play those URL/streams either.

I think I have tried everything. Could this be some proxy thingy? I used to use proxy, but no more and it still visible with 'echo $http_proxy'.

Mplayer says that "No stream found to handle stream on url http.."

Everything else works just fine, browsing, email and even some videos streams.

Thanks in advance, if anyone bothers to answer.

Have you installed the codecs you need?
For my distro, they're in /usr/lib/codecs
It looks like I have about 120 different ones.

See here: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/dload.html
Or search for mplayer essential codec
The win32 codecs are useful to have too.

DVDs need libdvdcss2 installed as well as livdvdread and libdvdnav
