    Running RedHat EL3 64-bit, Firefox 2.0. After installing mplayer and mplayer-plugin, I'm able to run mplayer fine, but Firefox can't load the plugins. I get the following messages:

    "LoadPlugin: failed to initialize shared library /home/pcarpen/.mozilla/plugins/mplayerplug-in-dvx.so [/home/pcarpen/.mozilla/plugins/mplayerplug-in-dvx.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory]

    These files all exist and permissions are fine. I believe the win32 codecs are installed in the correct place, and I've tried putting the plugins in various locations, with no changes. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

      Fixed my own problem. The 64-bit libs wouldn't work for some reason, so I installed the 32-bit ones. Worked like a charm.
