    No audio or video in JWM


    Hi all,
    When I try to play audio in JWM, I get the following error:
    Plugin Error
    Unable to activate plugin Media Player Keys
    There was no audio when I was viewing an embedded video in one of the websites too.

    When I tried to play an mpeg movie, it gave an error
    The playback of this movie requires a MPEG-2 Transport Stream demuxer plugin which is not installed.
    Its the same totem movie player. I have no problem in GNOME or LXDE. So, the codecs must be there in the system. Probably I need to edit(or create) some config file. Kindly help.

    Hi all,
    OK, I almost could solve the problem.

    Firstly, the audio problem was there because my account was not a member of group 'audio'. Now I realise that I had checked with another accuont when I complained that the same mp3s work with same player under GNOME. Sorry about that...

    Secondly, I had choosen two different formats on GNOME and JWM and said video doesnot work. When I checked in GNOME, the same movie did not play and gave the same error... Sorry about this too. I installed whatever 'gstreamer..*' I could find and now all of movie files (atleast those in my collection) work fine both in GNOME and in JWM.

    One strange this though I still get the first error msg:
    Plugin Error
    Unable to activate plugin Media Player Keys
    But the audio and video play fine...!

    If you know why, pls let me know. Otherwise this thread is almost closed

    Cheers,
    SV
