There is no second mozplugger installed.

Unless, of course, it installs to directories other than:
/usr/lib/{mozilla,mozilla-firefox}/plugins & ~/.mozilla/plugins

I always use dpkg to purge existing installations, and although I have installed from source many times, I've always removed all files from the directories provided by 'make install'. Not as if it's necessary, since they're overwritten anyway.


There has to be a phantom version though, as this seems to be the only logical explanation for the spawning of multiple processes.

maybe, but doing a regular locate or find will not find these monsters.. you need to look for any references in ANY files as well.

i use the gnome-search-tool to tell it what i want to look for.

also, doing a purge is a joke.. i see it leave basic config files in my root alll the time!

again, let us know how it goes..

Nope... dpkg purge appears to be working just as it should. All instances of mozplugger have been removed, including the one and only config file.

sure, first you didn't verify that you did a 'character' search.. that is, check and see if there any references to files you want OUT of the system.

ie. instead of just doing a file search, let say on 'mozplugger', you do a character search for 'mozplugger' to see if it is 'hidden' in any weird /etc/rcxxx files, or such.

also did you do the obvious and right click on when a mplayer file is 'trying' to play.. and adjust your cache, sound server, etc there?

i know some of these ideas seem repeticious and lame, but nevertheless..

also dont' over look trying other browers-- just for testing, so you can maybe isolate this problem better.

again, i know alot of people use firefox, but personally i find the ol' grandaddy mozilla easier to configure over all.

shoot, i can't even find certain basic config files for firefox (because you surely can't access them easily with the gui hardly, for instance with: 'Helper Applications').

i could not find 'helper apps' it in firefox.

and 'about:config' does not ever seem to save your settings beyond that session (although it doesn't in moz either)...and i can't find that dammed :config file ANYWHERE whenever i try and look for it!!

keep us informed.

I think I'm finally making some progress. There are certain instances where audio skips--these usually occur when a person is talking--but I've run across a couple of videos now that no longer have this problem. I tried apt-get and dpkg, both of which didn't work. Often times, one or two methods don't work and the other does. For example, in this case, apt-get and dpkg didn't work and source did. So, anyway, many of the videos I'm playing in Firefox are working fine now. However, there is one site I've tested that mozplugger always fails to cooperate with. That site is 'videos.streetfire.net'. I've tried to play quite a few videos now and none of them work.

The point is... I think I've finally got it working; for the most part. I think the problems I've been having are localized to a certain site and only certain videos.

Audio always skip when I had a sound card from Creative Labs like the Soundblaster LIVE. My systems with Turtle Beach Santa Cruz and Audiotrak Prodigy 7.1 does not skip audio or does not lag audio behind the video. Actually, I see an increase in performance when using these cards instead of using Creative Labs sound cards. Though mplayer has the worst audio and video sync that I have seen in my life. Xine and Video Lan Client are much better media players although they have a low tolerance for media files.

I use mplayerplug-in version 3 and I have no problems playing most videos on the internet. The videos plays off of tmpfs, so there are no hard drive latencies and throughput does not effect the performance of media being played.
