I've gotten the newest version of mplayer (CVS) and
compiled it. It works fine by itself, but the plugin
has touble playing some streams. When I go to
apple.com/trailers there is a small
intro/commercial-trailer that tells me to "check out my
newest movie". Apparently that one works fine. When I
go to the Mission Impossible III trailer teaser (large)
I get to initializing and then the browser freezes.
www.dr.dk - click some of the radio links there, ex:
"DR Boogieradio" which should pop up a netplayer for
the Danish National radio (their pop radio channel).
The plugin also makes the browser freeze. But I cannot
see any statustext, but all I get is the gray
background where the player should be (which means it's
doing some init. but didn' finish before the crash i
I tried using both mplayerplug-in from CVS and the
current stable version without any luck.
DR has some interest in supporting linux and mplayer to
play their radio (and video) and I've heard (i'm not
100% sure) that they had freeze-up problems too (but i
don't know anything about their set-up).
