WMV Embeded w/Firefox [Solved]

Hello,

  I was wondering if someone could help.  I have tried gxine, totem, and mplayer-plugin trying to find a way to play .wmv files embeded within Firefox.  All of these play the .wmv file in the player, but will not play it embeded using their plugins.  Just wondering if there was something I needed to setup in order for this to work.  Thanks.

Re: WMV Embeded w/Firefox [Solved]

you just need mplayer and mplayerplug-in.. if this is an activex-embedded video then use mediawrap extension

Re: WMV Embeded w/Firefox [Solved]

Well, I'm not sure how I did it.  But I have reversed my issue.  WMV files play fine within Firefox now.  However, mpeg files are now not working.  When I look in about:plugins I see the mplayer-plugin listed, but no references relating to MPG or MPEG files.  Any suggestions?

Re: WMV Embeded w/Firefox [Solved]

mplayer-plugin will only play videos if the website (server) is configured with the correct mime type for the video file. If it's not, you'll be prompted to save the file. So it's not as simple as saying 'mpg' or 'wmv' won't play, as its dependent on their respective servers as well.

I think what I'm saying is accurate, but maybe someone else can chime in to confirm or clarify tongue

This resolves the mpeg issue playing via mplayer-plugin.  However, it broke the WMV files again as they are now poping the download box.

Re: WMV Embeded w/Firefox [Solved]

Welp, I appreciate everyones suggestions.  But I have pretty much given up on getting this too work correctly.  If I get one working the other stops, and vice versa.  So, as such...  I'll just be relegated to downloading the video and watching it locally in a player.

Actually, this was quite interesting.  I went to the plugger website (didn't install plugger though), and then the liink to linspire to check out their testing page.  And with the execption of a couple of the links, mplayer played every video clip shown.  So, it would appear that I was testing using some clips that only work from Windows.  Not sure what that is, but at least it makes me feel better to know that it is working.  Thanks for the suggestion.

Re: WMV Embeded w/Firefox [Solved]

try mediawrap
that replaces any attempt to use activex to play videos with any available plugin (mplayerplug-in this case)
