  • I use mplayerplug-in 0.80 together with MPlayer 0.90.
    (both latest ebuilds from gentoo)

    It works for mov, avi and mpeg but not for wmv.
    To be more precise: wmv work with mplayer only but not with the plug-in.

    Here's one testpage where I tried it:

    Thanks in advance

      Those files don't have a valid audio or video stream in them.

      got the same problem with wmx from msnbc and foxnews. Or any wm streams. All files work in mplayer.

      I've got pre2, and mplayerplug-in .95 (both built from source according to docs)

        mplayer 1.0pre2 is not supported. It changed the funtionality of how mplayer works with playlists. Please get the supported version of mplayer 0.92

      Just installed the new mplayerplug-in1.0pre2

      all my stuff works fine now. Thanks for your work Kevin!

      Any way to get real video working yet? Or is that just a problem with the codec we're using for mplayer? (or mplayer itself?)

        I have been unable to get mplayer to play all the real player files I have found. So until mplayer works with them, there is not much I can do.
