Firebird and Straming videos

Dear humans (and the others)

Is there a way to watch some streaming movies in the browser with MozillaFirebird 0.7x ?
I already have the mplayer rpm installed, but it does not work with Firebird.
I cannot view any movie trailer on using my favourite browser

You need mplayer-plugin-1.Opre2.tar.gz which can be found here:

The directions in the 'INSTALL' file are very good. Just make sure you put the file that you 'make' [] into your Firebird plugins directory.

Hope this helps.

You also have to have mplayer and all its codecs installed as well in order for the plugin to work.
