mplayer is cool ... mplayer plug-in is even cooler..!


Because I'm fedup with crossover plug-in ( having trouble installing it) , so I looked for some other tools to view streaming media in the internet. Last week I found this tool call mplayer plug-in for mozilla. ...damn cool! It took me a week to figure out how to compile mplayer to work with this mplayer plugin...

Basic How to..
1. dowload live.com library form obviously www.live.com
2. dowload the current cvs version of mplayer and compile it with these options --enable-live --with-reallibdir="path to your live.com lib"
3. download the mplayerplug-in form sourceforge.net and compile it. Then copy the mplayerplug-in.so to your mozilla plugin folder...
4. To test it go to www.apple.com/trailers and view any movie... cool eh?

Thats all for now... later I'll compile rpms for RH9 after I have my breakfast.....peace. No more paid ,close source crossover for me!

If you don't need the live.com rtp support (the apple.com trailers work without it), you can install the rpms from http://freshrpms.net (apt is handy) and use the mplayerplug-in rpm. There's also a source rpm available here.

Dear zmedico, I though apple use rtsp protocol to stream media ? To use rtsp you need live.com libs... correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks..Anyhow here is my rpms as I promised. Install them in the following order..
1.live
2.mplayer current cvs
3.mplayerplug-in

"the plugin" rpm is relocatable so if your mozila is located at /somepath/mozilla you can do this
rpm -ivh --prefix=/somepath/mozila mplayerplug-in-0.80-1.9.i386.rpm

A quick glance at the html source shows that those quicktime trailers are accessible by http. I'm sure that the rtp support will come in handy though. Thanks for the rpms!

welcome... I compile the rpm in RH9. Other version of redhat might give some dependency problem...
