    I have tried to get mplayerplug-in to work in my fedora-core 3 but now after tree days I don't know what to do or try anymore!?! I have tried install it to mozilla and firefox. It plays some file types but not example wmv or mpg. When I go to mozilla 1.7.3 and about plugins there is list

      Did you do the tests on the project home page?

      http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/testing.php

      Also sounds like you might be missing the mplayer essential codecs. Please see mplayerhq.hu for info on how to install them.

      I have installed codec package "all" but not essential. but "all" is containing essentials and more...right?

       
      • Kevin DeKorte

        yes, you are right that all should contain essentials, but personally I've had better luck with the essentials package than all.

        Yes, I can play them.

        My codecs directory is /usr/lib/codecs and it looks like this

        Try this from the command line

      yep I can play that but not the wmv ones!

      can you really play LocalDub.wmv???

        Nope, I can't... with mplayerplug-in as the website has the wrong mimetype for wmv files (text/plain) != (video/x-ms-wmv)

        But with mplayer from the command line

        mplayer -cache 2048 http://www.suburbannoizerecords.com/video/LocalDub.wmv

        it does play.

        It is a problem with the website and they need to fix the mimetype for wmv files. Nothing I can do.

      "...and one more thing is unclear to me!!what is location of those codecs! some sites are saying /usr/lib/win32 and some /usr/local/lib/codecs and I think I saw one site saying /usr/local/codecs.......what is the right one?"

      By default, MPlayer looks in "/usr/local/lib/codecs/" for the "extra" ["all" "essential" and so on].  There are "configure" to change this location.  (I notice that untarring the extra packages will result in a directory named as the title, so it is necessary to move the contents to /usr/local/lib/codecs/ or rename it.)

      You may also want to use the "--with-extralibdir=/usr/loca/lib" [and "--with-extraincdir=/usr/local/include"] option for configure, but mostly everything is autodetected by MPlayer these days.

      -----

      BTW, there has been a recent update of the "all" and "essential" extra codecs:  "*-20050216"
