    mplayer - firefox - 10.1


    Hi,

    I've installed Firefox, and mplayer - both run perfectly - I can view .wmv files within mplayer when theyre downloaded to my desktop.

    However, when someone is streaming, or playing a .wmv file from their webpage all I get is a blank grey box ... any ideas?

    mplayerplug-in.so is in my /.mozilla/plugins directory.

    Cheers
    Foxed

    well .. mplayer plugin is not quite developed actually, at least thats what I feel. About your plugin, try installing it in the system firefox plugin directory as root. It shud be /usr/lib/firefox/plugins most probably. I am not sure, check out where you have installed your firefox. There will be a plugins directory inside.
