Re: MPlayer Plugin has no Sound


Dear All:

Thank you for being so prompt in responding to my questions! Anyways, I extracted the mplayerplug-in-2.80.tar.gz into my /home folder, but then moved it with the "mv" command to my firefox plugins directory, so it works, but there is no sound! Should I have not installed it from the tarball?

Sincerely,
Richard

1. Extract source.
2. Run ./configure.
3. Run make.
4. Copy mplayerplug-in.so to your Mozilla plugins folder, and mplayerplug-in.xpt to your Mozilla components folder.

You extracted the source to your home folder but didnt make the plugin. Issue the above commands in the terminal/console/shell, after the third step you will have a file called something like this: mplayerplug-in.so. Move this in plugins directory and restart the browser.

Good Luck

Thank you, but I'm new, so I'm sorry for being so dense: I typed "./configure" or "make" after logging in as root, and it says "bash: no such file or directory". Is there something I'm supposed to do after typing "su" and then my password?

Sincerely,
Richard

Create a separate directory for mplayer plugin tar file, like this:

mkdir plugin (make sure you know where it is, for example: /home/plugin)

mv /home/mplayerplug-in-2.80.tar.gz /home/plugin

cd /home/plugin

tar xzvf mplayerplug-in-2.80.tar.gz

cd mplayerplug-in-2.80 (or whatever the directory name is for extracted files)

./configure
make............and so on. Do all these as root i.e go in shell, type su and then your password.

You need to install the G++ compiler.

Thank you, but how do I install G++? What is the name of the program that I use apt-get install for? And will that take care of everything on that list of errors that popped out of my terminal, or just that first one, and finally, how come I didn't have this problem when installing the plugin for RealPlayer?

Sincerely,
Richard

You didn't encounter that with Realplayer because Real does not ship source - only the compiled binaries.

gcc is the name of the package. You can also get it here as rpm package:

I don't know if you've got this sorted by now, but I had the same problem with FC3 and the mplayer/mozilla plugin and no sound.
I resolved it by copying all of the win32codec files from /usr/local/lib/codecs to /usr/lib/win32.

Sound now works from the mplayer plugin for me in FC3, and I didn't have to uninstall mplayer.

There's an easier way to install mplayer in FC3; use 'yum'.
You can get a good overview of installing all your browser plugins through yum on this page: http://www.fedorafaq.org/

HTH.
