    Flash Plugin


    I cannot figure out how to get the Mplayer plugin working 100% in Firefox or Konqueror. Once in a while it is able to play music, but nowhere near all the time. I've emerged versions 2.80 and 3.15 and tried them out but that is apparently not the problem. Any suggestions or FAQs, readmes, or possible issues?

    Copy mplayerplug-in.so to your Mozilla plugins folder, and mplayerplug-in.xpt to your Mozilla components folder.
    then kill all instances of ffx/mozilla then restart the browser
    as for konquror ....no idea

    junt one thing if this is on an x86_64 bex then you may need to use firefox-bin (the 32bit firefox bianary to take advantage of the win32codecs)

    Er, hehe, mplayerplug-in works fine! But Flash does not give me any sound... I have no idea what to do about Flash. I've installed it manually, used portage, tried all kinds of things. Any ideas?

    Are you running a sound daemon which may be using all sound hardware (no hardware mixer, and no softwaremixer like dmix)? If flash is compiled with OSS support, you might need OSS emulation.
