Hi,

this issue has been present for a good while, so I finally got myself to reporting it. Basically, the issue is that ogg/theora files often do not start playing from within the plugin. The plugin says playing, and then immediately goes to stopped. One test case:

This happens for some file types more often than for others, e.g. QuickTime fails often, but MPEG almost never. Let me know if you need more information.

Regards,
Julian

    Sounds like mplayer is missing some components. Please make sure you mplayer supports ogg/theora files.

    Kevin, I switched to gecko-mediaplayer a while ago and I am more than happy with it. It could have been the xv issue, since gecko-mediaplayer works fine. You can close this issue if you wish.
