Mplayer Plugins in Firefox


Ok I'm trying to install the plugin for Mplayer onto Mozilla Firefox on my Fedora Core 3 system. I have the file and I've tried installing it several times but everytime it comes back telling me that Mplayer isn't installed. Which is crazy cause I'm using it right now. I have no idea where to head from here and would appreicate any help I can get on this.

The exact error that comes up is

"rpm -iv mplayerplug-in-2.75-0.FC3.i386.rpm
error: Failed dependencies:
mplayer > 0.90 is needed by mplayerplug-in-2.75-0.FC3.i386"

and I have Mplayer 1.0

as far as Xine I can't even get that installed
but that's for another topic

can you use yum to install it?
also did you compile mplayer or was it another rpm?

if you compiled it, and didn't make an rpm and install it the rpm (the program) has no idea that it exist on the system. yum is a package manager that works on FC and automagically resolves dependencies and such.

Well you could *try* (NOTE: I do not know if this will work -- but it should) passing the --nodeps option to rpm so it won't check for depends........

No I just got a feedback list with possible uses of the RPM command.
It might be an issue of where I picked up the plugin.
I used this site http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/

rpm --help | grep nodeps

since you compiled mplayer you should go ahead and compile the plugin also.

also, what errors are you having with xine? ( It kinda sucks cause I think mplayer is the better program but the xine plugins (totem and gxine) are the better plugins...just can't win)

The plugin is in and working. I should of gone with the source from the start.
I can see where it has buffering problems with some file types.

All that's between me and the vast internet media now is a fight with Xine.
If what I'm trying doesn't work you'll see a topic on that too.
