Mozilla mplayer plugin has no video
I'm trying to watch some of the NCAA games and it uses the windows media player. So I downloaded mozilla (I ussually use firefox) and installed mplayer and mplayer-plugin via apt (Ubuntu 5.10). I can hear the games and there is a grey box telling me what is playing but I can't see the video. How do I get the video to show too? Better yet, how can I get firefox1.5 to show an windows media player alternative (I couldn't find a workable guide, all was for 1.0.7)

do you have win32codecs or w32codecs installed? (you should be able to do this via apt).Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

might also be called "essentialcodecs" which if you can't get through apt for some reason can be gotten here
also mplayerplug-in works fine with firefox 1.5 you just need to put the proper .so file in firefox plugins and the proper .xpt files in firefox components directory.
