playing flv file in firefox


Hi,
i am using ubuntu 8.04.
I downloaded flv from youtube which on playing in totem gives "internal data stream error"
I have installed gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg,gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly,gstreamer0.10-plugins-ugly.
I tried with ffplay(Note:I have medibuntu ffmpeg) it says "[flv @ 0xb7f3a110]Unsupported video codec (7)".
what do you suggest ?
Please don't tell me to transcode to other format or install other player like vlc,mplayer etc.
I hope totem (being media player from GNOME) should have solution.

If you only want people to tell you what you want to hear, why bother asking a question?

FLV's play fine with vlc, mplayer, etc. If you want to use Totem, convert it, or use another player. And a quick Google search indicates the latest version of Ubuntu/totem, plays FLV's just fine.

Can you re-read my other post? The part where I say the latest version of Ubuntu supports FLV's through Totem??

Upgrade to the latest version of Ubuntu, convert the file, or use another player.

So it is clear that upgrading ubuntu or totem is only solution for playing flv files from youtube which I have found out use h264 ,aac codec .

I tried with mplayer but got
Code:
[flv @ 0x8804094]Unsupported video codec (7)
[flv @ 0x8804094]skipping flv packet: type 97, size 7627016, flags 0

Cannot find codec for audio format 0xA.
ffplay said
Code:
[flv @ 0xb7f72110]Unsupported video codec (7)
My another question is
How can I tell firefox to play the flv file considering it as streaming video ?

First, open a new thread for a new question, don't tack it onto the end of an older thread.

Second, did you try just opening the file in Firefox?? Click "File->Open File"???

In this thread I was loooking to play latest video from you-tube . Everyone said upgrade from ubuntu 8.04 or get latest video player (by compiling tarball. Actually even from repositories of medibuntu you don't get latest mplayer or ffplay).
Finally I played that video in firefox like it is being streamed (though computer is networkless).
Code:
<html>
<head> stream local flv to browser without internet</head>
<body>
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" width="480" height="360">
     <param name="flashvars" value="abc.flv&image=abc.jpg" />
     <param name="movie" value="mediaplayer.swf" />
     <embed src="abc.swf" width="480" height="360" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" flashvars="file=abc.flv&image=abc.jpg" />
</object>
</body>
</html>
with html file,abc.flv (OR you can edit link to flv) ,abc.swf(http://www.walkernews.net/mediaplayer.swf) & abc.jpg(if you want thumbnail) in same folder.
Still it is something.
To add more
You can make symbolic link abc.flv which will allow you to play different videos just by running
Code:
ln -s Destination_video abc.flv
My question is full screen button in JW media player 3.13 does not work though audio & pause work as desired?.

Seems like i am able to solve my problems.

I found out that if I add
Code:
allowfullscreen="true"
in embed tag of my html file i can get fullscreen by pressing desired button in swf.

Let there be light

Another question
I got the swf file youtube uses via http://s.ytimg.com/yt/swf/watch-vfl172190.swf
What I liked about it is you can navigate to any second of video unlike the above I have mentioned in which right , left arrow moves 15 seconds.Rest you have to guess.

Now the question is what should be modification in html file because merely changing swf link does not play the video ONLY brings up nice interface?
