plug-ins for mozilla ...when i access websites such as bbc.co.uk/radio1 and some of the others, so far streaming music sites, there are the plugin icons....so i believe mandrake 9.0(installed version) comes with a lot of plugins but i can't listen to the streams

You need the realplayer. Try http://scopes.real.com/real/player/unix/unix.html

This will not be in Standard plugin setups.

So is it installed in /usr/local/RealPlayer8/?

is there a file called rpnp.so in there?

If so thats your plugin. Copy it too /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins

CHeck help->about plugins to see if Mozilla recognized it (Form some reason ram has a problem

Just a continuation on this

I installed real player and the plugins and also copied rpnp.so to plugins directory and it shows up when I click on about-plugins in Mozilla. But still I am unable to play songs online. It says, realplayer is not installed. Should it work by just copying the .so file? or am I missing some thing. Is there any site where we can test all these plugins.

Thanks

The thing I use realplayer for is the BBC site ram files, what are you trying to use? Post a url and I'll give it a try from here.

BTW If your using firebird that has a diffrent place for the plugins.

I have the same problem regarding the bbc site and mozilla/firebird. Unfortunately, the bbc uses realone player for its "webplayer" streams. As of yet, nobody has managed to get the realone player plugins to work yet with any browser.

Check out this link for the realplayer linux user forum thread on this topic: http://realforum.real.com/cgi-bin/un...oard=embedplug

I know the realplayer8 plugins work ok but I don't think this works with the bbc webplayer. The only way around it is to open the ram file manually and use realplayer to play it outside of the browser.

Thats what I do at the moment, although some are just ram filenames. Which makes it easier. Just which they used a standard format instead. mp3's? Their giving this stuff away anyway. Why make it hard for everyone.

Just joined the board after having recently installed Mandrake 9.2 off the front cover of Linux magazine (I use KDE).

Initially I had all sorts of problems with sounds as I have a C-Medial driver. Eventually sorted
it out by disabling full-duplex in aRTdsp and by setting Exchange DAC off at boot up time (using amixer command) [as Kmix doesn't seem to want to preserve any changes made during a session]

I too previously couldn't access the BBC radio1 stream directly from within mozilla, but could get other stations OK. But once I'd installed the "mozplugger" plugin and after the original realplayer plugin was disabled (mozplugger already supports realplayer) radio1 was accessed fine PROVIDING THE ARTSDSP WRAPPER was used to start mozilla e.g. ALT-F2 (command line) "/usr/bin/artsdsp /usr/bin/mozilla"

I've just also got yahoo messenger up and running too (but with no alert sounds) by downloading the RedHat 8 version off their web site (RH9 doesn't seem to work).

Needed a bit of tweaking to get it going though (uses /opt type directory structure whereas Mandrake appears to default to using /usr/local type directory structure).
