Hello,

Firefox3 with gecko-mediaplayer 0.6.0 plays .wmv .mov .mp4 -- however, I only get the sound and not the picture.

If I download the file - VLC can play it without issue.

What do I need to do to get this working within firefox3?

AMD64
Ubuntu 8.04
Firefox3

It was super easy.

just right click in the screen while the video is 'playing' and change the output option to "x11".

Now I see the picture as well as hear sound.
