Mplayer Plugin For Firefox/mozilla Available
« on: November 29, 2005, 01:24:27 am »
I've compiled and packaged up the mplayerplug-in version 2.70 & put it in my feed.  It's not perfect, but it lets you listen to NHL online game-radio!  Sometimes you have to explicitly kill the mplayer process when you're done, but other than that it works fine in my (minimal, NHL.com-only) testing.  I don't expect it to work with realplayer streams, and have no idea about QuickTime.  

It should work with firefox 1.06 out of the box; you'll have to move the mplayerplug-in.* files to use it with mozilla or older firefox.  Enjoy!

That's really beyond my skills.  I'm more of the grab the source, run ./configure, symlink in all the missing headers and package it up type.  I think more codecs may be dependent on mplayer itself and not on this plugin, but that's just a guess.

An aside: I neglected to strip the .so file at first, so I've put up a new ipk to fix that.  And note that my version doesn't have any gtk widget support built in: with them in, my browser always crashed when using the plugin.

That's my understanding, but looking at the mplayerplug-in configuration it appears the plugin does need to be told to support the various formats (which it seems to try to do as much as possible by default).

Here's something more for you to test: I put together the newest version, 3.16, in order to try to get gtk widgets without crashing (the changelog hinted that bug had been fixed).  It still crashed, but a new without-gtk build did seem somewhat better about closing mplayer when firefox was closed, a small improvement.  The new ipk is in [a href=\"http://interstel.net/~girash/zaurus/feed/]my feed[/url] as usual.

I use this one with firefox since it first appeared on the feed in 12/05 or so and it indeed plays video! On my 860 with Beta1 I can play video streams internal within firefox, but only microsoft codecs (asf?) can be used so far. Realplayer streams will not work for me. Only issue: You have to play the whole stream, no interruption possible, or you have to close down the x-server.
