gamespot videos wont play, but mplayer works

    this is broken for me for a while now, mplayerplug-in used to play the gamespot videos just fine but after some update (atm i am using 3.31) it doesnt anymore.
    it just buffers and downloads something, then starts the audio for a sec and then it seems to restart the buffering. trying to start the video manually (right click -> play) doesnt work either.
    copying the url from mplayerplug-in and starting mplayer with 'mplayer url' plays the video without problems.
    i'm not sure if this is just me or a bug, so any advice is appreciated.

      Works here. I would suggest setting the vo to x11 if you don't have that set already. You can do that off the right click menu and select 'Configure'

      I'm also guessing that you are using mplayer 1.0pre8

        yes, forgot to mention, i'm using mplayer 1.0pre8.

        using vo x11 does indeed work, thank you! :-)

      This is actually an mplayer 1.0pre8 bug, that is why I guessed at your config.
