Hitting walls with Real and mplayer

Dear All,

While trying to make mplayerplugin-in, I ran into the following error:

/usr/include/mozilla-1.4/xpcom/nscore.h:46:28: mozilla-config.h: No such file or directory

and indeed, this include file is nowhere to be found.

I was able to install RealPlayer 10, but the site I specifically wanted to view, and began me on this quest, requested the and codecs, which were also nowhere to be found. I soft-linked to which seemed to halfway work, but my softlink did not work.

I need either real or mplayer to view the video on the site I'm interested in (a Frontline episode on marketing), and neither works. What do I do?

Thanks in advance.

- Ben

Dear Jatt,

Forgive me for my ignorance. This is the first time I've used rpm. Package managers intimidate me, and I use Slack.

I ran:

rpm --install MPlayer-1.0-alt10.pre4.src.rpm

and no errors showed up. I unfortunately have no idea what to do next. What am I looking for? A source directory?
