Firefox video Plug-in not working?


On some websites, I am unable to view streaming video/audio. For example, it will just display a black window and sometimes I am able to hear sound, but not see video. Othertimes, nothing will load and I'll get a blackscreen.

I am using Firefox 0.9.3

Here is my aboutlugins

Well I looked at what the videos had in common and that they are all *.mov files (apple quicktime). AVI and MPG streaming videos work fine. I guess I need better Quicktime codecs? Does anyone know any good Quicktime codecs for Linux?

The problem is the version of the mplayer plugin you're using doesn't work with 10.0 very well. I have never been able to get that version to work. So I did a fresh install of the source. The How-to explains it very clear. Give it a look.

For one, I'm using Mandrake 9.1. I followed the exact directions of that website and this is what I got:


[ken@localhost mplayerplug-in.2.66]$ ./configure --enable-gtk2
checking for g++... g++
checking for C++ compiler default output file name... a.out
checking whether the C++ compiler works... yes
checking whether we are cross compiling... no
checking for suffix of executables...
checking for suffix of object files... o
checking whether we are using the GNU C++ compiler... yes
checking whether g++ accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc... gcc
checking whether we are using the GNU C compiler... yes
checking whether gcc accepts -g... yes
checking for gcc option to accept ANSI C... none needed
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking for gawk... gawk
checking for pkg-config... /usr/bin/pkg-config
checking for mozilla-plugin... Package mozilla-plugin was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `mozilla-plugin.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'mozilla-plugin' found
configure: error: Unable to find gecko sdk



-------------
compiling in Mandrake, for me at least, is like trying to walk on water. You hear about someone else doing it, but you know it's just not possible.

As I said, The How-to works for version 10. Not 9.1. If you had stated you were on 9.1 the answer is different. For 9.1 you will have to install the appropiate version of mozilla-devel rpm. Thats the package that gecko sdk is found. What version of Mozilla are you running??? If its default for 9.1 I think its mozilla 1.2. so install the "devel" package for that version of Mozilla and it should compile. Remember even though you are running Firefox .93 your mozilla version is what its compiling against.

Sorry for the confusion. If this isn't correct , post your Mozilla Version and we'll get you going.

I'm not sure which version I have, but this is what I see when I look at my /home/ken/.mozilla directory:

Code:
[ken@localhost .mozilla]$ ls
appreg  firefox/  ken/  mozver.dat  pluginreg.dat  plugins/
I do have Mozilla directory in /home/ken/Mozilla/. That is version 1.6b.

I don't know which is my default Mozilla, though.

When I type mozilla in the konsole, Firefox 0.9.3 pops up. I didn't make it like this so don't ask me why Firefox pops up.
