just getting aggrivated


Okay. I want to update Firefox. I want to play pls files.

So I go to LQ's sources.list thread for Debian. (I run Etch)

I change my sources.list file to reflect whats on the sticky. I run the following:

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get dist-upgrade

BAM my firefox is brand spanking new 1.5.0.1 YAY!
Now when I go to play pls files, Totem says 'there is no plugin for this file'.

ARG! It plays JUST FINE before the update. I update, one thing is fixed and another thing breaks!

Do I need special sources?
Do I need to run different commands?
Or is it just impossible to have my cake and eat it too with Debian?

why not just go online and search for the correct codec?

It doesn't say something like "click here to install missing plugins"?

Perhaps https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/plugins/ may have the plugin you need.

Oh, no, it has the codec. On a clean install of Debian it plays pls files JUST FINE. It downloads them and totem plays them. Perfectly.

After I "upgrade" my OS, Firefox is updated and still downloads the pls files. It's Totem that stops working. I dont know where I would find a codec that is most likely built into it.

http://www.gnome.org/projects/totem/

thats a good place to start, google found it for me

scroll down to codecs, it says the codec is based on the backend, so gstreamer or xine
