browser multimedia selection


Hi folks,

On my website i am streaming some stuff. No hass there.

But On ubuntu, I have change the preffered app to be rythembox, I ecspect it to start the app in its own window. It don't. It blanks the fram window to black and plays the stream. If I navigate away from that framed windows it stops.

Any ideas?

Not much info to go on, but here goes:

Rythmbox may not be the best package, depending on WHAT media you are streaming. Check both conanical sources in the package manager sources tab, then search for "streaming" and "media player",

You will likely find players that work with your media formats.

Also make sure to install Adobe Flash non-free - probably the most installed of all players for ubuntu.

Good Luck

thanks for that, but I can hear my stream. What it used to do, and I would like it to do again, is:
start the media player (in its own window) and play the stream. It now, makes the frame window go black, an plays the stream. If I nav to another page or whatever it stops.

I have tried the i think default applications, thing but no help there.

thanks, for your reply
