    What codecs have you installed? What type of streams do and do not work?

    Second, what distro are you using (this will help with installation instructions)?

    Thanks you.I am not be sure what codecs to install. My problem is I can not enjoy music online because some plugin for Mplayer (I don't know what it is). I think all download plugins will be OK but I don't know where I can find them and how to install them.
    for this subject I attach a picture to.
    Thanks for all reply.

    What is the stream type (I'm guessing its a Windows Media Player format) and what distro?

    If you are trying to watch streams from a website, you will need to install mplayerplug-in. You can do this with yum:
    Code:
    su
    <enter your root password>
    yum install mplayerplug-in
    This is assuming you have the livna repositories enabled. If you are unsure, visit here for instructions to set up the livna repos.

    Since you are using CentOS (an RHEL clone), you will need a repo that is binary compatible and therefore Livna is no good for you.

    What version of CentOS are you using? Assuming you are using a 32-bit system, install this for CentOS 4, this for CentOS 3 and this for CentOS 2. With the appropriate package installed, you should then be able to execute the yum command above to install mplayerplug-in.

    If you are not using a 32-bit system, let me know and I will give you the proper link to the repo info.
