Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

Did you install a firefox plugin?

You'll need either mplayer-plugin or totem-plugin for viewing movies in firefox.

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

mplayer-plugin  will do it?
Shouldnt I add some more plugins or something?
and what just to do "pacman -S mplayer-plugin" or what?

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

indeed:

pacman -Sy mplayer-plugin

In case you want some other plugins (flash/java), then also

pacman -Sy flashplugin j2re

rm /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-bitmaps.conf
ln -s /etc/fonts/conf.d/yes-bitmaps.conf /etc/fonts/conf.d/10-bitmap.conf

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

Get rid of Helix player, its plugin probably blocks other stuff, and it won't play any stuff that MPlayer doesn't play.

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

Look again at about:plugins and list what you can see there.
Do you see:
- Google VLC multimedia plugin 1.0
- RealPlayer 9
- QuickTime Plug-in 6.0
- Windows Media Player Plugin

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

Nonono, wait!

If you want to use mplayer-plugin, get rid of VLC and Totem, they probably block it.

If you want to use the Totem plugin, you **MUST** initialize a user dbus session with Gnome, either by starting Gnome via GDM, or by putting this in your .xinitrc in place of whatever you have:

exec dbus-launch --exit-with-session /opt/gnome/bin/gnome-session

If you want to use VLC, get rid of totem-plugin and mplayer-plugin.

Just remember, multimedia plugins are often incompatible!

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

I think only removing helix and totem plugins will be OK. VLC plugin is shipped with mplayer-plugin:
mplayerplug-in-gmp.so

Google VLC multimedia plugin 1.0

    File name: mplayerplug-in-gmp.so
    mplayerplug-in 3.21

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

$ pacman -Qo /opt/mozilla/lib/plugins/libtotem_mozilla.so
$ pacman -Qo /opt/mozilla/lib/plugins/mozplugger.so 
$ pacman -Qo /opt/mozilla/lib/plugins/helix.xpt 

And remove packages which own those files:

pacman -R pkg_owning

Re: Can't see streaming movies in FireFOx

You're lucky, I was runing out of patience.
Test it here:
http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/testing.php
http://fredrik.hubbe.net/plugger/test.html
Most of those media are supproted by mplayer-plugin but not everything.
