mplayer Mozilla plugin


I installed the Mplayer plugin for Mozilla and the video playback works but there is no sound! How do I fix this?

It's quite likely you need to go to the Mplayer site and grab the codecs. Using the Mplayer plugin without installing any codecs will give you a picture with no sound on Apple Quicktime videos, for instance.

Regards,

SU to root and run "nautilus". Then create a /usr/lib/win32 directory and extract the contents of the codec archive into the folder. Restart mplayer and all should be well.

The mPlayer plugin in Mozilla doesn't relate to playing a DVD... just run mPlayer (if you have it), xine, Totem, xmms with the video plugin, gstreamer, RealPlayer for Linux, or any of the various media players I have not named, but one of which is surely installed, to play your DVD.

If, however, it's a retail DVD (thus, encrypted to prevent copying), and you're running RedHat or SuSE, which do not include the decryption library for legal reasons, you should find the libdvdcss package for your distribution and install it.

The function of the mplayer plugin in Mozilla is only to show video content within the Mozilla suite of browsers.

Somewhat offtopic, but to answer mplayer/dvd concerns read: http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/dvd.html. However I recommend xine for DVD's.

Have codecs but no sound

I get no sound when using the mplayer plugin, but I do get sound when I play the same video in regular mplayer. This would appear to rule out a missing codec as the the cause.

Any answer to this?
