Opening rmvb files within Firefox?


Hi,

Has anybody found a way to open rmvb files within Firefox 3 using the MPlayer-plugin?

Thanks,

Andrew

I have only one rmvb file stored on my system, but I can open it up and play it just fine in Firefox with the mplayer plugin. Do the files play for you when you open them up in the standalone player, or when you run "mplayer <url>" from a terminal?

Make sure you have codec support installed for realplayer formats. Remember that real is proprietary so some distros won't include it by default.

The file plays fine in the standalone MPlayer, I run the svn version with the full codec pack. But not with Firefox and the MPlayer plugin.
