mplayer1.0pre5 yes; mplayerplug-in NO


After some effort, I have mplayer 1.0pre5 working, and now I'm trying to get mplayerplug-in working with firefox. If I try to load a page with streaming video (eg wmv, quicktime) the mplayer plugin starts up and I see "buffering xx%". Then either it gets to "buffering 99%" and stops, or "playing <filename>". However, I never get any sound or video.

In a separate issue, mplayer doesn't even try to play realvideo, as it doesn't think that I have a realplayer plugin installed.

1) How can I tell firefox to use the mplayerplug-in for realvideo?

2) What the hell is wrong with the plugin; ie why don't I see video or hear audio?

Thanks,

-nr

did you get the codecs? check mplayer's site as there are all in one codecs. you'll need to install them and recompile mplayer with the path to the codecs as a ./configure option.

yep, I've got codecs

I have the codecs, as I can play wmv and realplayer files just fine in mplayer. I just can't get streaming video to work.

I don't think that I do, as I only installed it once. What makes you say this?

I had the same problem. I don't think you said what version of linux you're running but I'm using fc1 and had the same problem. I worked on it for days. Finally gaveup and started over with apt-get and everything is working fine.
