Macromedia Flash and quicktime for Firefox?


I can't seem to get these to work, the original flash that came with SUSE 9.1 worked, but no sound would play. So i got rid of it and i'm trying to find one that works, but to no avail

I also can't seem to get quicktime to work under Firefox, i get the plugger (the rpm) and i install it ,but still, it asks for it.

What do i do

I don't know about quicktime though the plugin is there I don't know remember how it got there.

As for Macromedia, have a look at the mozdev site (look for the link from the mozilla web site. install as they explain. rpm (like apt-get I suppose) isn't always necessary. The mozilla pages are a great help!

Other people will be more helpful I hope!

Cheers

Get MozPlugger 1.5.1 from the mozdev site and you'll get quicktime (I've just checked aboutlugins in firefox and mozilla). Mozplugger seems to cover quite a lot of ground!

As for flash -- I have shockwave flash -- you can also get it easily when you come to site that requires it -- there's a link that gets you to the download page.
There's another macromedia plugin I have on Mozilla in windoz (it's called director something) but I have no idea how diffrent it is from shockwave.

Cheers,

The shockwave director is for games and such. The easiest way to get that on linux is using crossover office which also runs some of the other windows plugins for mozilla...
