i use mplayer-plugin 3.05 with mplayer CVS 20050827 and the all-20050412 codecs.
after removing pluginreg.dat in .mozilla/firefox , and even add enable-wm=1 and enable-qt=1 in /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf, about:plugins still not show wmv and quictime as video handled by the plugins in firefox 1.05.
Moreover i can't play video wmv at cnn.com or quicktime at apple.com/trailers because firefox tells me to donwload the appropiate plugins.
may i need to mention that i can play wmv or mpeg video with mplayer
it simply works with mozilla 1.7.10 !
but the display of about:plugins is still the same than for firefox
it is a mess!
I can wiev wmv video in mozilla because i have totem that installed some plugins registered in mozilla (i can see that in about:plugins) to see wmv video. but if i uninstalled either mplayerplugin or totem's plugin i can't see them
so i can see wmv video with mplayerplugin in mozilla because totem register to be able to see them !!! that is what i understand ...
or some config file is not clean-up when i uninstall some plugin ...
Sounds like you have not installed the plugin properly or you have a conflict with the totem plugin. Please read the install page and see if that is any help.
you were right.
i have not seen that there is new files like mplayerplug-in-wmp.xpt with this new release 3.05 and since 2.85 (? don't remeber the number) ...
that should work now . i go and test it with the files that i lack ..
