What browser and version of that browser are you using?

Go to this page and follow the instructions, if required, to update your browswer.

Go to this page and follow the instructions to add Debian Multimedia to your sources.list. You can add packages as required after that.

After you have done this we can concentrate on getting it to work.

alright, after going through both the links above and following the instructions to the best of my ability, I have a question about one of the instructions in http://mozilla.debian.net/, when it says to,
Quote:
The mozilla.debian.net archive is signed, so APT may complain until you add the archive key to your APT keyring.
I clicked on the link for the archive key and it loaded, but I dont know how to add it to my APT keyring.
Plus, and I dont know if this is important, now when I type in the command
Code:
apt-get update
, when it is supposed to have finished updating, it doesnt seem to show any problems, except in the end it says,
Code:
Fetched 1,027 B in 7s (141 B/s)                                                
Reading package lists... Done
W: GPG error: http://mozilla.debian.net squeeze-backports Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 85A3D26506C4AE2A
W: GPG error: ftp://ftp.deb-multimedia.org stable Release: The following signatures couldn't be verified because the public key is not available: NO_PUBKEY 07DC563D1F41B907
I also didnt understand this part of one of the links,
Quote:
The mozilla.debian.net archive is signed, so APT may complain until you add the archive key to your APT keyring.

You can do so by installing the pkg-mozilla-archive-keyring package. Once installed, you can check the key with the following command (requires the debian-keyring package to be installed):

$ gpg --check-sigs --fingerprint --keyring /etc/apt/trusted.gpg.d/pkg-mozilla-archive-keyring.gpg --keyring /usr/share/keyrings/debian-keyring.gpg pkg-mozilla-maintainers
pub 4096R/06C4AE2A 2010-11-20 [expires: 2012-11-14]
Key fingerprint = 85F0 6FBC 75E0 67C3 F305 C3C9 85A3 D265 06C4 AE2A
uid Debian Mozilla team APT archive <pkg-mozilla-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>
sig!3 06C4AE2A 2010-11-20 Debian Mozilla team APT archive <pkg-mozilla-maintainers@lists.alioth.debian.org>
sig! 54FD2A58 2010-11-20 Mike Hommey <mh@glandium.org>

1 signature not checked due to a missing key

The latter message about signature not being checked is expected, as the archive key is signed by two keys, but only one being in the Debian keyring at a given moment: 54FD2A58 is an old key that is going to be deprecated and replaced with A6AA8C72. You can thus also expect the last signature validation to differ depending on the Debian keyring version you use.
I updated my iceweasel15.0-1bpo60 plus 1(browser im using) and managed to install acroread, plus I did everything else I could, the problems above are the only things I had trouble with.

For the debian multimedia keyring open a terminal, as you have done previously type in su and password etc. then type in
Code:
apt-get install deb-multimedia-keyring
As far as I am aware, others may correct me on this though, there is no gpg keyring for mozilla.debian.net.

Ok now you need to install codecs.

If I were you I'd open Synaptic and look up either W32codecs or W64codecs and install that. The 32 and 64 mean the type of system you are running, 32 is for 32 bit and 64 is for 64 bit. Once you have installed that restart Iceweasel and test the videos.

I'd also go through and install a few gstreamer plugins and VLC as well. VLC will play all the video types you ask it to.

For gstreamer type in gstreamer in synaptic search at the top and look for anything called gstreamer0.10-plugins-<bad><nice><etc> and install them. That will give you a pretty full set of codecs.

Only one or the other will be available. If you have a 64 bit you wont see 32 bit as an option.

When you come back in the morning if you haven't already done this open a terminal and type
Code:
apt-get install gstreamer0.10-ffmpeg
If that doesn't work I'll have to to take a look at what packages you have installed.

First make sure your browser is updated. The current version of Iceweasel is 15.0.1. You can install it either from the mozilla.debian.net repo if you run Squeeze/Stable or from Experimental if you are running Wheezy/testing or sid.

FlashPlayer - Debian Wiki - http://wiki.debian.org/FlashPlayer
For flash either install flashplugin-nonfree from the normal Debian repos or flashplayer-mozilla from deb-multimedia.org repo.

Remove gnash if you have it installed.
Code:
apt-get purge gnash
Java - Debian Wiki - http://wiki.debian.org/Java
For Java I suggest Openjdk which works well:
Code:
apt-get install openjdk-6-jre
and the browser plugin, on Debian Stable you want icedtea6-plugin
on Wheezy/Testing and unstable/sid you want icedtea-6-plugin

For other browser plugins install one of the following:
gecko-mediaplayer - Multimedia plug-in for Gecko browsers
browser-plugin-vlc - multimedia plugin for web browsers based on VLC
totem-mozilla - Totem Mozilla plugin
xine-plugin - xine-based media player plugin for Mozilla browsers
You also need the app that the plugin uses, in most cases installing the plugin will also install the app.

Other plugins:
mozplugger - Plugin allowing external viewers to be launched inside Mozilla
mozilla-acroread - Adobe Acrobat(R) Reader plugin for mozilla / konqueror
konq-plugins - plugins for Konqueror, the KDE file/web/document browser
konqueror-nsplugins - Netscape plugin support for Konqueror
kpartsplugin - Netscape-compatible plugin to embed KDE file-viewers into browser

Various keyrings which are only needed if you use that repo/architecture:
deb-multimedia-keyring - GnuPG archive key of the deb-multimedia repository
pkg-mozilla-archive-keyring - GnuPG archive keys for the Debian Mozilla team package repository
debian-archive-keyring - GnuPG archive keys of the Debian archive
debian-edu-archive-keyring - GnuPG archive keys of the Debian Edu archive
debian-keyring - GnuPG keys of Debian Developers
debian-ports-archive-keyring - GnuPG archive keys of the debian-ports archive
emdebian-archive-keyring - GnuPG archive keys for the emdebian repository

For various ways to install Oracle Java see:
Howto install Oracle Java on Debian
https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...-debian-34567/

MultimediaCodecs - Debian Wiki - http://wiki.debian.org/MultimediaCod...ltimediaCodecs

I would suggest closing your browser then before restarting it, delete the pluginreg.dat
and mimeTypes.rdf in your Iceweasel/Firefox profile located in .mozilla. Please note that this will reset your plugin and application settings in Iceweasel/Firefox.

The above will allow your browser to play pretty much any online media. Other than a few of the sites that use proprietary media players like some of the news sites, I can't remember the last time I ran into anything online I couldn't play in Firefox.

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; Linux i686; rv:15.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/15.0.1
Plugins
  • DivX Browser Plug-In
  • Java(TM) Plug-in 1.7.0_07
  • KParts Plugin
  • mplayerplug-in is now gecko-mediaplayer 1.0.6
  • QuickTime Plug-in 7.6.9
  • RealPlayer 9
  • Shockwave Flash
  • Windows Media Player Plug-in

Note that the above plugins are provided by only 4 packages:
flashplayer-mozilla, gecko-mediaplayer, Oracle Java 7 , and since I run KDE the kpartsplugin.

Feel free to use whichever package manager you prefer to install the packages you need/want.

As for gstreamer, this is what I have installed and just like Firefox I have yet come across anything I can't play.:
Code:
$ dpkg -l|grep gstreamer
ii  gstreamer0.10-alsa:i386               0.10.36-1                          i386         GStreamer plugin for ALSA

You also may want:
w32codecs - win32 binary codecs or on amd64
w64codecs
they are in the deb-multimedia.org repo.

Im not sure what happened, but I did various things before I came back and checked to see if the videos were working. I wasnt trying to fix the problem weve been trying to fix, but I just checked to see if videos work on various websites and they now work. I did a manual fsck and reinstalled iceweasel, and instead of a manual proxy on the browser I changed it to find one automatically, and I cant remember what else I might have done.
and I dont know what I did, but its all fixed.
I have one other problem that just popped up, Im going to try and figure out if there is a solution that I can use to fix it, and if I cant, I always have you guys to help me.
Thank you very much,
animalcrackers.
