I was wondering if any one here as got somethng to open realplayer files when in Mozilla Firefox.
It is just that I have had a look around, with no joy in getting it working,
There is realplayer and helixplayer (realplayer open source version)
in link TUR.
Run that past me again, what is TUR?
TUR are unofficial repositories containing packages not included in current/extra.
To get realplayer, add
[link] Server = ftp://ftp.archlinux.org/tur/link
pacman -Sy realplayer
Many thanks for that, I actually downloaded and installed them.
The next question is how to get it working as a plugin on mozilla-firefox. (Or do I need to be using a different browser?
Well, I have made some progress, but can get no sound out.
I am using alsa, and kmix outputs sound fine.
Realplayer starts but with volume at zero, when I turn the sound up I get nothing.
Where is it trying to send sound to?
Any other thoughts?
i downloaded realplayer from the real website and it worked as a plugin in firefox without doing anything,
i think realplayer uses oss so you must have alsa-oss installed, i just load one module for my soundcard and that works, it could be that your /dev/sound permissions are wrong,
arch + gentoo + initng + python = enlisy
I thought it might be an architecture problem.
OK, so I have alsa-oss installed, but I can find what I need to do with it afterwards other than putting
in my .bashrc (Is that right).
It still does not work. I feel so close, and yet so far...
Many thanks, got it in the end.
Ok, for some reason mozilla does not put all that is required in the pluginreg.dat. So you need to add/edit it to look like:
Many thanks, that was part of the solution. Basically now my pluginreg.dat for real player reads:
Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible version 0.4.0.404 built with gcc 3.2.0 on Dec 14 2004:$
Helix DNA Plugin: RealPlayer G2 Plug-In Compatible:$
0:audio/x-pn-realaudio: Realaudio-plugin resource locator: ra,rm,ram:$
1:audio/x-realaudio: RealAudio file: ra,rm,ram:$
Then you also need alsa-oss and then modprobe the following:
Which I have done in rc.local.
I hope that helps others too.
