Firefox and Kaffeine


Hey, when i watch a website with a quicktime video file in it, kaffeine pops up.. is there a way to make it so it stays in the website?

sorry, iwas in a rush...

Ok, On webpages that have quicktime embedded onto the page with it's design, it doesn't stay in the browser webpage(the video) kaffeine opens and it plays in there...

How do i make it so it plays in the browser and not in kaffeine?

what i think is that really depends on the setting of the broser to mlay that images in a web browser or a new player itself

use another plugin. the kaffeine starter plugin is called the kaffeine starter plugin because all it does is open up the kaffeine application and doesn't play embedded video/media files in the browser, but in the kaffeine media player application.

I forget if Kaffeine runs of of Xine or Mplayer or what but if you have mplayer installed I'd suggest using the mplayerplug-in. It rocks.

kaffeine indeed runs off the xine engine. another plugin-able media player based off mplayer is kmplayer. not sure if the mplayer plugin can handle those quicktime movies with the click to play, but kmplayer will. kaffeine will also.

you need to use another plugin if you want to watch, for example, quicktime movie embedded in the browser. someone pointed out the mplayer plugin for mozilla. you need to install mplayer and the plugin. if you end up not caring about whether the movie opens up in your browser when embedded, then reinstall kaffeine.

Its quite the conundrum,there are so many plugins for linux,,yet most people are not aware on how exactly to go about fullfilling there plugin needs..if you happen to use mozilla/mozilla-firebird this is the tech-best http://mozplugger.mozdev.org/ ,,mozplugger is the best in my opinion,,as you can then truely define the plugin you want to use for any given file type.

i follow the instructions too

To install in your own directory: (for Mozilla)
cp mozplugger.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/mozplugger.so
cp mozpluggerrc ~/.mozilla/
cp mozplugger-helper ~/.mozilla/
cp mozplugger-controller ~/.mozilla/

should i put it in /.mozilla/firefox ???
