Miro asking for flash player but it is already installed in my system.

Hi I have installed Miro internet TV, version 3.0.2. but I can't play internet live news through it, every time it asks for adobe flash player, which is installed in my system (I can play youtube videos very well).

Every time it goes to adobe side, and ask me to choose what type of package I want to download (.rpm , yum or tar.gz), I choose but then nothing happens, is there any solution to this? Can't Miro recognize the installed adobe versions....?

thanks and looking forward a help

Hi -

A couple of links that explain your dilemma:

the adobe flash plugin is installed in the firefox plugins directory and can only be used by a web browser, it won't work in miro unless you open the video in firefox.
... and ...

Currently in Linux Miro doesn't support be it Adobe or Gnash. Their reason is unresolvable performance issues that cause the program to crash. This is very frustrating because a lot of the Features of Miro depend on Flash. So I recommend that work be done to solve this so that like other OS's Ubuntu can utilize all the Features of Miro.

The Adobe non-free flash player doesn't work with Miro, so we disabled all Firefox plugin support for the gtkmozembed browser that Miro uses.

We'd love to be able to support Flash sites in Miro on Linux, but it's not clear how to go about doing that. In the meantime, you'll have to view flash sites outside of Miro.

Miro ... intentionally disabled Flash on Linux
... and, finally, Mr. Steve Jobs weighs in:
'Hope that helps .. PSM

wonders why they don't simply embed Firefox or something like uzbl in Miro. Or copy how Boxee does it.

thank you for your reply, but what I think that those links are specially made for ubuntu users, myself using Fedora 13 and I didn't get much help as, the code and commands are typically for ubuntu user.

Any guide

Bye the way thanks for the information about steve jobs, it's really a good news,
