Okay folks, neither gecko-sdk nor mozilla-devel packages are in my codecs folder.
Those aren't supposed to be in your codecs folder. Those are libraries needed to compile the mplayer plug-in. What you do need in your codecs folder are the codec from here. You should have unpacked one of the codec tarballs in /usr/local/lib/codec.

Don't worry, its a bit over my head too. Glibc is a fairly critical library in that a lot of system functions use it. If it gets out of sync with your distro, it can cause a complete failure. Usually the problem happens when glibc has been compiled with a different version of gcc than the rest of the system. If you follow Fedora's normal methods of keeping your system up to date, you should never have to worry about it. However, if you upgrade glibc as part of a dependency for other software, you might cause problems.

Still can't get that embedded video player working. It's a pain always having to copy and paste the URL into a media player. If you want, I could cut and paste some configuration info into this thread to try and figure out why it doesn't work. Anybody want to give it a go?

At this point it certainly couldn't hurt. I don't know if I'll come up with an answer, but maybe someone else will recognize something.

Some more clues:

Embedded MPlayer DOES WORK fine for the following link (without the "Use HTTP instead of RTSP" option):
http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/play/128.pls
(sound only, radio)


IF "USE HTTP INSTEAD OF RTSP" is selected in the Embedded MPlayer configuration, this is what happens (two examples):
rtsp://mm3.rai.it/tg/200702102030tg2.rm
THIS MEDIA OPENS IN EMBEDDED REALPLAYER, NOT MPLAYER, AND THERE IS AN IMAGE RESIZING PROBLEM (REALPLAYER PROBLEM)

AND THIS NEXT LINK WORKS - HOWEVER SOUND ONLY, VIDEO/IMAGES DOES NOT WORK - IN MPLAYER:
rtsp://212.58.234.120/nfs01/BBCWorld...vider=BBCWorld

(All of the above with X11 and alsa)

It would be nice if everything worked all the time without any hassle...

Does this help?
Does anybody have any ideas?

OK, I think there might be a couple of things to try. From the reading I've been doing, it sounds like there are lots of troubles if you have more than one video plug-in installed. I would actually uninstall ALL video extensions, and then install just mplayer (there is a nice FAQ here on how to do it the Fedora way. It's about half-way down the page).

Then, check that you have the proper codecs installed. If you run mplayer -vc help, it should dump out a list of codecs and their working status.

Wow! It'd be cool if someday I could understand all of this stuff...
To uninstall, do I simply type in "yum uninstall mplayer" ? I've installed things, but I've never actually uninstalled anything!!

Here's some more info on codecs, etc.:

Well, we can rule out a codec problem.

As for yum, I've never used it so I guess that is the proper command. You might want to check any man pages or Fedora help sites to make sure. Also, don't just uninstall mplayer. From what I've read, you need to uninstall all media players (xine, kaffiene, totem, etc.) and then put mplayer back.

Linux is great! I've got tons of mediaplayer software installed on my box and can read anything. I sometimes have to try different players and fuss around a bit, and I need to spend a little more time experimenting with configuration, but that's not a problem. I am experiencing one minor problem though...

In Mozilla Firefox, when clicking on a link (video or audio), the file or stream plays, but I cannot control what is going on (I can't stop, pause, etc. Nothing!). When and if I try clicking again, I get the same file twice slightly out of sync. I can then type 'top' in a terminal and kill, but I was wondering if anybody knew why I was having this problem and maybe offer a solution.
