They haven't worked for a while now for me. In the past they worked fine.
Firefox 188.8.131.52 + mplayer-plugin 3.5
If I play it in fullscreen 9/0 keyboard shortcuts work. Normal view doesn't take any keyboard input, only mouse.
Please report what combination of firefox and mplayerplug-in worked. Also, please note that sometimes firefox does not pass keyboard events to the plugin.
Also you might consider gecko-mediaplayer + gnome-mplayer instead of mplayerplug-in
You're right seems like firefox isn't passing the keyboard events over. Unfortunately, it hasn't worked for a long time and I don't remember what version used to work, kinda hoped the problem would fix itself.
Interesting, never heard of gecko-mediaplayer until now. Aside from the volume thing, what is the difference between it and mplayerplug-in?

Both of those combined take the good things from mplayerplug-in and do them in a more modern way and do them better in my opinion. Since I wrote mplayerplug-in and gecko-mediaplayer I took the things that I learned from mplayerplug-in and did them in a cleaner way.

Just played around with gecko-mediaplayer and wow.. great job. gecko-mediaplayer is awesome, it just needs more publicity.
So what makes gecko-mediaplayer 'awesome' for you? What are your favorite things about it?
Honestly, just the fact that it feels like a real interface. mplayerplug-in interface felt fake to me for some reason, probably because of that speaker icon that did nothing.
The dbus support is a great idea and should help with future development.
I know that's not much to make something 'awesome'. To be honest, mplayerplug-in was already 'awesome' this was just an improvement on that.
Great job on both programs, If I have any feature requests/bug reports I'll make sure to file them now that I know that this project is active.
