Thank you for the answer.

As I am not sure you really did understand what I want to do, I'm just going to explain a little more, in order to be sure of what to do.

What I want to do is to embed a real terminal, and I would like to be able to run any application from this terminal. So I don't want an emulation, I want the real xterm, or the real gnome-terminal. I am not interested in doing a fake term, there are already lots of it in javascript. Actually, what I would like to do is to be able to replace any text field by a vim instance, so I would be able to edit it using the real vim shortcuts, and not a crappy emulation in javascript. So I think embedding a terminal would do the trick, and could be usefull to run other apps. I've been told there are nice things to do with the xembed protocol : http://standards.freedesktop.org/xembed-spec/xembed-spec-0.5.html. I was also told to look at plugger http://fredrik.hubbe.net/plugger.html.

I thought (but you seem to be saying I am wrong) that embedding an application is kind of "generic", that's why I was asking on this mailing list. Considering this explanation, do you have another advice?

Best Regards,
Christophe-Marie

Hi,

This is not a question about mplayer, but more about how to embed an application in Firefox.

I'd like to embed gnome-terminal in Firefox. My question is : is it possible, and do you think reading the source of mplayer-plugin could help me to do it? I'm looking for good links to read for embeding applications in Firefox, and I am also looking for examples. Could you give me some tips?

If you think there is a better way to learn, please tell me.

Regards,
Christophe-Marie




Hi,

i don't think the mplayerplug-in source will help you.  Have a look at webmin (webmin.com), they have a terminal module. AFAIK, it's implemented as Java Applet.
