mplayer plugin for Mozilla 1.4

I have a working mplayer with gui enabled. I love it.

Now, I'm trying to get the mplayer plugin ( for mozilla to work. My mplayer is version .91, and the plugin is version .80.

The mplayerplugin-conf file looks like this (in my ~/.mozilla dir):


I have tried it with and without the noembed=1 option, gui=yes, gui=mini, as well as having no conf file at all. Every time, the plugin hangs with the message " Connecting to media source ..." and then crashes Mozilla.

Running mozilla from the term produces the following when accessing the plugin:

$ mozilla &
No such file or directory
Unknow option on the command line: novideo

The plugin homepage includes tests for mplayer and gmplayer. Those work without a problem. However, the tests for the plugin do not work.

I think that covers all of it. If anyone has experience with this, please help.
