I try to play ms streaming video files from this location:
http://www.gamespot.com/xbox/action/narc/media.html

But none of the movies will play if I set x-mplayer2 embedded file
association to kplayer-part.
Kplayer itself (and mplayer) works fine.

I tried to load the url in the source of the movie window in kplayer
and this doesn't work as well...

    Hi Martin,

    I was able to play the videos with KPlayer. There are two ways to make
    it work.

    1. After you paste and open the URL in the full KPlayer, go to
    File/Properties, and on General tab set the Playlist option to Yes. Then
    hit Stop and then Play.

    or

    2. Download the playlist file, for example using lynx --source --dump.
    Then paste and open in KPlayer the mms:// URL that's in the playlist.

    Obviously this sucks, but it's the best KPlayer 0.5.x can do. KPlayer
    0.6 will be able to recognize a playlist automatically, but that's still
    several month away.

    After that I will try to figure out if I can get Konqueror to embed KPlayer
    in place of that nasty Microsoft control. Have you tried this with
    KMPlayer (the other KDE frontend for MPlayer from Koos Vriezen)?
    Supposedly it may be able to handle embedding better that KPlayer...

    Thanks for submitting this bug, and I will keep it open until it works
    perfectly.

    I only recently discovered that konq could show these movies
    embedded with the right kpart. Before kplayer (and before I knew I could
    choose :) I used kaffeine's kpart (xine based), but that is _very_
    unstable, that's why I looked further.
    I will try and see if the kmplayer part works better!

    Thx for the tip and good luck! I'll keep an eye on 0.6!

    Have you tested this again with KPlayer lately?

    Please let me know.

    Thanks.
