use-mimetypes=1 [MPPI 2.66]

    Whenever I use the "use-mimetypes=1" in my mplayerplug-in.conf the plugin will not work with either WM or Real streams.  Instead I will get that popup that demands that I download the player.  Is this the expected result?  Otherwise [ie., "use-mimetypes=0"] will work and play either stream types.  (Yes, I do remember to renew the $HOME/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat.)

    I use:  mplayerplug-in 2.66, mplayer-current [CVS *-20040710], extra codecs pack "all-20040706," Mozilla1.4.0 with gecko-sdk-1.6 (per MPPI README), and, of course, the appropriate plugin configure options for Gtk1

    BTW, I have been trying lately without any audio/visual items configured to act as Mozilla helper applications in Edit -> Preferences -> Helper Applications.  (Though in order to play Real *.rm clips locally [not streamed] I need to tell Mozilla what to do with it.)

      Do you have the mplayerplug-in.types file in /etc or in $HOME/.mplayer ?

      I have the mplayerplug-in.conf and mplayerplug-in.types in $HOME/.mplayer/ .

      It is just the exact one that is included with both 2.66 and the CVS's I have gotten.  It is the "mplayerplug-in.types" dated March 19, 2004.  (Which differs, in fact, from what Mozilla's about:plugins shows by default without the "use-mimetypes=1" option set in "mplayerplug-in.conf.")

        I'll make sure the .types file is sync'd to the code in the next release.
