On almost every website I've tried with streaming media the media will not play. I don't know if this is something to do with the proxy server I have to use or a lack of plug-ins on Firefox or something else entirely. (They're not blocked I can get them on a windows pc on the same network)
Can anyone give me some clues as to what the problem might be?
More details below.
Thanks for your time.
this one I can play from the command line with mpalyer but in a browser I get 'waiting for video' and the status bar says 'Done'
This one I have control of the player buttons but it just says 'buffering' and the status bar says 'Done'
On these two I have control of the player but the status bar says 'transfering data' then 'Done and nothing plays
This one plays! Why's it different?
