dowloaded the source mplayerplug-in-1.0pre2.tar.gz logged in as root tar -xzvf mplayerplug-in-1.0pre2.tar.gz cd mplayerplug-in ./configure make cp mplayerplug-in.so /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ restarted mozilla
I did verify that mplayerplug-in.so is in the plugins directory:
[[email protected] plugins]$ ls libflashplayer.so mozplugger.so raclass.zip libjavaplugin_oji.so mplayerplug-in.so rpnp.so ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Mozilla shows that it has the mplayer plugin when I open the About Plugins in Mozilla:
mplayerplug-in v1.0pre2 handles QuickTime Windows Media Player Plugin
File name: mplayerplug-in.so
Video Player Plug-in for QuickTime and Windows Media Player streams using mplayer
MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled video/quicktime Quicktime mov Yes video/x-quicktime Quicktime mov Yes video/quicktime Quicktime mp4 Yes [...many more lines deleted...]
but when I visit http://www.apple.com/trailers/ to try to view any of the Quicktime trailers, a white box opens and a text message says:
mplayerplug-in Playing http://a772.g.akamai.net/(blah blah blah)
and the video doesn't ever start.
This is on a FC1 machine upgraded from RH9.
If anyone has any ideas for what to try or sites that describe how to solve the problem, it would be appreciated.
