For Hoary (when it's released). According to this (http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=144937) Totem now has a working Mozilla plugin. Would it be possible to backport this into hoary-extras?

Mozplugger doesn't allow for controls to be used with embedded movies, like in this (http://www.hadess.net/blog/images/totem-mozilla-plugin.jpg) screenshot with the Totem plugin.

Well, I'd certainly love to see this. Mozplugger hasn't worked very well and is suboptimal even when working as intended. I've been forced to install mplayer and its plugin which seems bloated and dirty to me.

Until the official Totem Mozilla plugin infects our browsers you can always use this HOWTO (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=17727) to embed Totem in Firefox using mozplugger. This came about after many hours of frustration with Mplayer and mplayerplug-in and its horrible UI.

The topic below bescribes how to re-package Totem to include the Mozilla plug-in. Is this enough to help get it backported?

It would be great if we could get 1.1.1 from breezy which includes "major enhancements to the experimental mozilla plugin." The version in hoary only seems to only work well with quicktime (although I haven't been able to compile the breezy plugin, so it might not actually be much better).

Excellent, this is enough info to file this into a backport :)

I think anything Totem or gstreamer related is worth backporting. In Hoary, totem-gstreamer has rather serious issues (for me, even after enabling dma on the dvd player, DVD playback is choppy, and there are problems playing certain files, while totem-xine works perfectly for everything).

bumping threads here :P

I hope this gets backported anyway :D

About what you say, totem-gstreamer is unable to get binary files (plugins) to play other files, whi totem-xine is able. Although there's a recent post in the backports forums about a plugin that would allow totem-gstreamer to use the plugins from the w32codecs package.

I've been waiting for this aswell and would like to see a backport released. Also, i saw the guide for creating backports and followed it as best I could and I've got two debs that include the totem mozilla plugin.. You can download the xine version (http://z.narutochaos.com/ubuntu/totem-xine_1.1.1-0ubuntu3_i386.deb) or the gstreamer version (http://z.narutochaos.com/ubuntu/totem-gstreamer_1.1.1-0ubuntu3_i386.deb). Since they are my first backports and I have no idea if they even work outside my system, I didn't want to submit them, but if you would like to try em out, go ahead :-) .

You can also get the version from Breezy which supposedly has improvements to the mozilla plugin.
Gstreamer version (http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/totem/totem-gstreamer_1.1.1-0ubuntu3_i386.deb)
Xine version (http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/universe/t/totem/totem-xine_1.1.1-0ubuntu3_i386.deb)
Dummy package (http://archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/pool/main/t/totem/totem_1.1.1-0ubuntu3_all.deb)
I've used these for several weeks of a few different Hoary boxes with no problems. I recommed you use the Xine version and make sure you have w32codecs installed (you can get it from backports' extras repository). To install:

sudo dpkg -i totem*.deb
And to use in firefox:

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libtotem_mozilla.* /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/

The debs I built are from the latest breezy version compiled using Hoary libs/packages. You also have to link the plugins from moziilla to mozilla-firefox for the ones i built too.

Can't install the Totem plugin on Hoary, as it needs libc6 version 2.3.4-1 or higher.

jdong, could you please backpot libcs6?

I have a backport ready, but it is installing the plugin to /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins and not to /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins. As soon as I get this figured out I will upload it to backports.

I have uploaded the new totem (1.1.1) to hoary-backport-staging/main. It works great, but has two know issues.

1. You will need to link the plugins to the firefox.

sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/libtotem_mozilla.* /usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins/
2. There is a bug showing gifs. Totem will show up with a fd:\\0 message. This is a known bug, and the Totem developers know about it.

Seems to work just fine, many many thanks! =)

I had so much trouble with the stupid vlc plugin it was unimaginable, now it just seems to work. The functionality seems a bit limited, but it is already miles better. Thanks again!
