Please help on "Mplayer plugin" failed when using "Make"
 
Hi guys,

Don't really know where and how to proceed. I have searched in this forum, but

could not find any solution ..... :(

I have installed Mplayer and it works very nicely, no problem at all ...

But when I tried to install "Mplayer plugin" using the following steps:

[just a clue, I use Debian/Sarge and Gnome]

(1) I checked my version of firefox, it shows in "Help" --> "About" ...

rv: 1.7.10

(2) I went to the website of Mplayer plugin and downloaded the file:

"gecko-sdk 1.7.10" from Mozilla, and then extracted it.

(3) I downloaded the file "mplayerplug-in-3.11", and extracted it.

(4) When I started installing using the command "./configure", it showed an

error like: "gthread 2.0 not found".

(5) then, I launched the command "make", it showed some error message

and didn't proceed anymore.

==============================

I tried to look for the package "gthread 2.0" but could not find it in Debian

:confused:

Does anyone have a solution for this, please :( :( :(


Thank you in advance, guys ... :)

did you read the "INSTALL" file in the mplayerplug-in package? ? ?

especially about the parameters telling ./configure where to find gecko-sdk and which gtk version to use (gtk2)

Hi guys,

thanks a lot for your answers. I already did the things you

mentioned, but it seems that I don't get the plugin work :(

I have installed mplayerplugin a number of times and as long as I did "./configure --with-gecko-sdk=/path/to/gecko-sdk" all went well.

Post up the commands you issued please.

Hi, XavierP

I did exactly you told. I put my gecko-sdk folder in my home, so I did:

"./configure --with-gecko-sdk=/home/Alez/gecko_files/gecko-sdk",

but it didn't work :(

I tried both including and excluding the folder name "gecko-sdk" in the above command, they also didn't work.

I tried gecko-sdk for both versions, 1.6 and 1.7, and again

when I launched "Make", it showed me the error messages I mentioned.

I really don't know how to configure this, but anyway thank you for your reply.

If you get this error during configure:
checking for mozilla-plugin... Package mozilla-plugin was not found in the pkg-config search path.

You need to use the gecko-sdk option. Using gecko-sdk 1.6 with an earlier version of mozilla seems to be ok. NOTE:Using the gecko 1.7 SDK with a 1.6 version of Mozilla does not work. Use gecko-sdk 1.6 for Mozilla 1.6.x and gecko-sdk 1.7 for Mozilla 1.7.x

If you can't figure out what you need try running

./whatoptions.sh

in the mplayerplug-in directory.
I got this from http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/install.php

Thanks for reply, XavierP

I actually did everthing that is recommended in the MplayerPlugin website, but I could not get that work unfortunately :(

However, I have switched to the MediaPlayerConnectivity which is one of the Mozilla Firefox extention, and it works nicely.

Thanks for your post again :)

Is this MediaPlayerConnectivity available for Solaris (on x86) also?
