I canīt load some webpages into the caffeine

Hello People!

I am starting to use the linux OS and I would like to know if I can get some tips and help to use it properly. I am liking this linux OS , though I am more familiarized with Windows.

I have tried to open some webpages in the linux Caffeine to watch internet tv or to listen to music and it does not come up.

The first time the admnistrator got it for me. But it was very quickly and I could not follow him. Is there any tips on how can I do it alone? I do not want to bother him everytime I need to do this.

* the place I use Linux is an Intenet café.

Thank you for any help.

The quickest and easiest way to do this is to use a normal web browser to go to the web site. Then when you see the video file or a link to the video file you click on that. You will see a window pop up asking what the web browser should do with the file. You can either save it to disk or open an application. This is where you would select to open an application and select Kaffeine or Xine or MPlayer or other multimedia player.

That's what I would do.

Hi stress,

I have done this what you said normally. But when I choose what to do with the file –usually I ask to open it into the Kaffeine to listen to music or to watch a movie- the access is denied for a reason a do not know yet. I will open it again tomorrow(03/01) and I will send you the msg that appear on the screen.

This is the what I get when trying to listen something via Linux:

Xine's error- Kaffeine reader: it was not find any plug in to this resource.

And details xine: couldn't find demux for ><
input_http: content length = 3033 bytes
xine: found input plugin : http input plugin
>>> Check if another program already uses PCM <<<
snd_pcm_open() failed:-19:No such device

Now I remember that one of the steps took by the admnistrator were:
1. Go to the Red Hat( Main menu)
2. Choose Sound and Video. Reaching the Audio Player.
3. Then click on Add. Reaching the directory to Upload something(file), or to give some instructions into the directory. After that I lose the string....>>>

In the directory of the Audio Player appear the following:

I remember the something was done maybe in ./ or ../.

Thanks for the help.
