need help installing mozplugger in firefox on fedora core 2


hi. I downloaded mozplugger from their site. the exact file was: mozplugger-1.5.2.tar.gz. I unpacked the file and read the README. It says to

To install in your own directory: (for Mozilla)
cp mozplugger.so ~/.mozilla/plugins/mozplugger.so
cp mozpluggerrc ~/.mozilla/
cp mozplugger-helper ~/.mozilla/
cp mozplugger-controller ~/.mozilla/

however there was no mozplugger.so in the unpacked directory. there was a mozplugger.7.bz that i uncompressed. Am im supposed to substitute that for mozplugger.so? also i copied the remaining three files but they all end in .c. for example it wasn't mozpluggerrc but mozpluggerrc.c. Does that matter? also im using firefox so should i cp the files to ~/.mozilla/firefox instead? Any help would be appreciated. thanks.

You didn't do this part ( from the README):


To re-compile:
Edit Makefile to suit to your system.
Type 'make'.

Notes:
* You will need xlibs-dev (Debian) or libxfree86-devel
(Mandrake), or equivalent headers to compile.
* For 64-bit architectures, use the option -D__amd64__ in
the Makefile.

by the way, there are newer versions than 1.5.x

ok so now i see the apporiate files after doing the make and make localinstall_mozilla commands. But should i copy them to the .mozilla folder or the .mozilla/firefox folder?

nevermind: i did make install to install it globally and it works.

is it possible to use a skin with moz plugger so that there is a play, pause, etc button with the streaming content? I've tried using the command line keys and they have not seem too responsive.

dunno, I've never really cared for the mplayer plugins too much. you could try the gxine and totem plugins and see if you like them better, just make sure you have the codecs from the mplayer site ( I usually use the all-xxxx package) extracted to /usr/lib/win32.

well i'd assume those would need xine or totem to work? Or would they work with mplayer as well?

they are front ends to the xine engine. xine by itself is just an multimedia engine, without a frontend. the xine_ui package is the default frontend, but totem or gxine are others. on FC2, I'm not sure what rpm's you'll need, as with any rpm distro it will probably split the libs off into other packages. compiling from source, the libraries ( gxineplugin.so and libtotem_mozilla.so) end up in <prefix>/lib/gxine and <prefix>/lib/mozilla-1.x/plugins respectively.
