firefox integrated mpgs and wmvs


Hi all,

I'm trying to play video that is integrated into webpages (that use media player, quicktime, real). If it is a file by itself, it loads up perfectly into totem (most of the time), but anything that is actually fixed into a webpage does not show at all. Anyone know how to fix this?

Hi!

Use the plugin from xine or mplyer. I did not get the one from xine to work properly, but mplayer-pulgin works nearly perfectly.

Along with this, you must havbe the codecs installed, which you seem to have, if file play in other situations.

So, just check mplayerhq ..

Greetings, Sascha

thank you very much for your help. i checked mplayerhq's website and could not find the appropriate mozilla/firefox plugin... maybe you could direct me to it, if you have the time?

and once again, thank you!

Hi!

Ok, I think I was wrong with mplayerhq...

Googling showed up this site... I think I got it from there...

http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/

I hope this is a bit more satisfying :-)

Greetings, Sascha

Thank you! This worked almost perfectly. The video window now shows in mozilla and it buffers, but only to 99%, and then it stops. Any suggestions? It says something about this on Mplayer's FAQ page, but does not say how to solve the problem. It mentions that mplayer may not be in the PATH, but seeing as I am a newbie, I have no idea how to remedy that.

Any help would be amazing. Thanks!

Hi!

Ok, I am not very educated on this sector too, and I am having similar problems from time to time.

Did you download and install the codec-packages from mplayerhq?

I downloaded the all, windows, quicktime, realplayer, ... Unpacked them and copied them all into /usr/lib/win32
In the beginnning it worked perfectly.

But after some time, don't know why, I only get sound, and picture only 1 out of 10 times.

I hope this may help you a bit more!

GReetings, Sascha

To get a program to the PATH you must add it to login shell's startup file.

For Bash, this file is /home/yourname/.bash_profile

For example, I had to add

PATH=$PATH:/usr/local/j2re1.4.2/bin

to make my Java installation work. So just open a xterm and find out where mplayer is:

which mplayer
whereis mplayer

$PATH means current path. You can check what dirs are currently in your path with

env|grep PATH
