    I just got done installing mplayerplug-in.

    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00000FCBH/103-6976855-1280661?v=glance&n=5174

    When I went back to the above link and click on windows media an mplayerplugin box appears and during that point I get the following:

    initializing
    buffer 0% - 0kb
    stopped

    When I click on play, it says "Getting playlist" and then it just stops. I don't hear anything. Perhaps maybe I need mplayer and it's gui to make the plugin work?

    *By the way, I use mozilla firefox.

    Here are some more info that I should probably give out. My /lib/win32 directory contains the following:

      I tested the current CVS code and it works here. I can suggest that you try current CVS because there have been changes to the streaming support in versions after 3.25. Also make sure that you version of mplayer supports mms:// streaming.

      I'm not sure if my current version of mplayerplug-in supports mms://streaming: I checked over at my /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf and I got the following:

      #debug=0
      #vo=xv,x11
      #ao=arts,esd,oss
      #download=1
      #dload-dir=$HOME/tmp
      #keep-download=0
      #noembed=0
      #cachesize=512
      #use-mimetypes=0
      #enable-ogg=1
      #enable-smil=1
      #enable-helix=1
      #qt-speed=med
      #rtsp-use-tcp=0
      #nomediacache=0
      #framedrop=0
      #autosync=0
      #mc=1
      #black-background=0
      #user-agent=NSPlayer

      The above list is my .conf for mplayerplug-in. Maybe the above information can help and maybe give out some clues. Here is another. In my /etc/mplayerplug-in.types directory I have the following:

      video/mpeg:mpg,mpeg:MPEG;
      audio/mpeg:mpg,mpeg:MPEG;
      video/x-mpeg:mpg,mpeg:MPEG;

      audio/x-basic:au,snd:Basic audio;
      audio/x-scpls:pls:Shoutcast Playlist;
      video/divx:divx:DivX Media Format;
      video/vnd.divx:divx:DivX Media Format;
      audio/midi:mid,midi,kar:MIDI Audio;

      *I don't have "mplayer and it's gui" installed by the way. I'm guessing that I don't need it, or do I?

        mplayer is an absolute requirement as mplayerplug-in uses it to play the media. You must be able to type mplayer at the command prompt and have it work.

        The mplayerplug-in.types is not used since all the options in the mplayerplug-in.conf file are all commented out (this is normally exactly what you want).

        So install mplayer and see if things start working better..Did you also complete the tests on the mplayerplug-in webpage that has testing?
