Firefox 2 MLB.com/ Mplayer/Flash Broken


Hi,
I upgraded to Firefox 2.0, running Mepis 6.0 yesterday. Now I can't watch video on mlb.com.

The Kaffeine plugin or the Mplayer Plugin won't launch.
Prior to upgrading, Kaffeine launched externally.

In the past Mplayer would work, however the video and audio was choppy.
Kaffeine worked much better.

I want to get this solved before Spring Training.
Flash is also now broken, I reinstalled it but it's not working either.
Any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

Check your old plugin dir of for e.g. firefox-1.07/plugins and the symbolic links.
Then I would recommend just to creat some new sym.links.

Symbolic links

Hi,
Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I love the community here.

I added a symbolic link for both kaffeineplugin.la and the kaffeineplugin.so from the /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins folder to the /usr/lib/firefox/plugins folder.

I now have audio, but no video. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Code:
 cp macromedia-i386.repo /etc/yum.repos.d/

Flash

Hi,
Thanks for the reply.
I did get Flash to run in Firefox,using the nonfree Flash plugin for Mozilla.

Still no embedded Video or external video using Kaffeine or Mplayer in my Browser.

Are you running KDE?
If so go to Kmenu lower left corner of your desktop/system/Package Manager.

File a bug with the developers at Firefox? I haven't even seen the Memphis distro so the best I could advise is make a bug report with the broken program's development teams, or try re-installing the problem children (programs that are broken)
