Mplayer plug-in not working????


Well, I already have Mplayer working....now I'm just trying to get the plug-in to work.

I DL'd Mplayer plugin 2.66 and Yast said there were no conflicts or dependancies, so it installed fine.....only, I goto click one a place where I know it'll need the plug-in the stream the video, it says I needed quicktime. If the Mplayer plug-in were working, it wouldn't prompt for that.....

So, my question is, why isn't it working? I looked in my Mozilla browser plug-in directory and the mplayer plug-in isn't there. So, if Yast installed the plug-in, where do I look so provide either a link or cut/paste it in the mozilla directory????

Which codecs did you install with MPlayer? If the Quicktime codec is not installed, those files won't play.

I dl'd the mplayer from Packman. I can play .mov files fine......as well as asf, wmv, mp3, mpg, etc...every format plays fine, but not with Mozilla.....I get prompted to either save it to disc (system prompt) or DL the appropriate plug-in(website prompt)...

When the rpm is installed with Yast, where can I find the Moz plugger?

in moz / ffox if you go to "aboutlugins" is mplayerplug-in listed? if not... it's not insatlled correctly. there is also configuration options, normally in /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf which say which mime types to pick up on.

Yeah, mplayer plug-in isn't in my mozilla folder....how can Yast not install an RPM correctly I'm in RPM hell, LOL.

So where can I find the mplayer plug-in to copy/paste it into the Mozilla folder if YAST installed the rpm??????????

**Edited** installed Mozilla-devel and got one step farther.....it just now says yes for "checking Mozilla -plug-in...crap.....

checking for mozilla-plugin... yes
checking MOZPLUG_CFLAGS... -I/opt/mozilla/include/java -I/opt/mozilla/include/plugin -I/opt/mozilla/include/xpcom -I/opt/mozilla/include/string -I/opt/mozilla/include/nspr

Perhaps you should add the directory containing `gtk+-2.0.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable

linux:/home/oicdn/Documents/Programs/mplayerplug-in # ./whatoptions.sh
which: no mozilla in (/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/usr/X11R6/bin)
That is the error I get if I try to install it via script

./configure

So umm.....I'm lost....
