    Mplayer and plug-in for Firefox not working with

    I'm having a hard time getting the videos on to appear in just shows 'no picture'. i have mplayer installed (and i think its the latest version) and the mplayer-plugin as well...i also have the w32codecs although they are almost a year old and i cant find a working repository for the 6/11/06 version.

    does anyone know exactly how to get it working or will launch work with a different video player? i think the reason i want mplayer is bc i have a java script that allows me to save the streams using greasemonkey. maybe someone knows if i can use a different player. my research has turned up nothing...

    I'm pretty sure requires Windows and or IE to work. The same problem exists using firefox in Windows. Search the firefox forums for this.
    They had released an extension that enabled videos to work. I'm not sure of the current staus of this issue, however. But I had read about it a while back.
