mplayer-plugin works for streaming audio - Buttons don't work though


Hi,
I'm using MPlayer-1.0 and I've tried these mplayerplugins for Mozilla
0.95, 1.2, 2.75

The audio stream comes through just fine. I'd kinda like the buttons
to work though. You know the Stop button, clicking it doesn't do
anything.

Any way I could get that to work?
Sounds simple but i'd like to get it to work so I could pause
the stream.

You can pause the stream with the space bar.
man mplayer
Look at keyboard controls

I don't know what the problem is that you are having with mplayer. I assume that you are launching the GUI front end gmplayer. You could re-compile it with debugging to see output.
I've had probs with gmplayer working correctly.

You can controll the volume, seek, pause, ect with key strokes and forget about the GUI.

Hi,
Yeah I know of the space bar button for pausing the playback.
I was hoping I could pause the playback stream with the mouse.
I always lean back in the office chair while reading and listening so the keyboard is out of reach. LOL. Lazy yes...

Thanks for the mention of man mplayer.
I think i'll try and get the mouse programmed so the scroll button
on the mouse pauses the playback. I saw mention in the manual
of the mouse being used, i'll have to figure out what to do.

Thanks for the help.
