    mplayer plugin isn't working...


    I did apt-get and got mplayer and it works fine for all other things but news clips on web pages. I get the little green puzzle icon saying that I need the mplayer2 plugin. Other distros have fired clips right up after installing mplayer, but I seem to be stumbling a bit with Yoper. What am I doing wrong?

    thanx

    that didnt work...

    thought at first, geez, I'm an idiot...but tried your command in bash at Root and got:

    root@yos helios # apt-get install mplayerplug-in
    Reading Package Lists... Done
    Building Dependency Tree... Done
    E: Couldn't find package mplayerplug-in
    root@yos helios #

    did an apt-cache search for mplayer and mplayer plug-in and only got the actual
    player. Both show as most recent. Is there a tweak in Yoper I am missing?

    thanx
