I have not done anything special, other than apply this Howto (no other codec installs) and it works, . . . sort of.

    In return for this unhelpful information(!) would you tell me something? When I link to the URL you specify, the audio stream plays, but I have no visible controls or indication of buffering, or even what plugin is playing the stream. All I see is the tab shown in the attachment. Everywhere else I've accessed streams, I can see what component is handling them, start and stop the stream, etc.

    When it was working for you, did you see something in addition to the essentially blank screen? (or is it just the way the CBC has implemented it?)

    Thanks.

    The CBC link works for me on HH 8.04 with FF 3.0.4. However, I am not using the Gecko plug-in, instead I am using the Windows Media Player plug-in... not even sure how I got that!

    If great minds thought alike, there would only be one kind of everything!

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video Howto

    Everything loaded and worked great while following the installation guide.

    everything works on sites like youtube.com

    but if i am trying to stream a file from another website in .mpg format (or something like it) i only see "File: /tmp/geckoeOZQzc" no image and no sound.

    any ideas?

    oh, and many thanks to the OP, helped a bunch.

    Looks like you're using the Totem browser plugin.

    Try part 2 of my howto.

    You're welcome.

    Which sites? And which browser plugin are you using? Do non-streamed videos play okay?

    Have you ever been able to watch them (on the system you're using now) in Ubuntu and/or Windows?

    Ah, thanks, never even heard of it. It's a cross-platform media centre, if anyone else is curious.

    Anywho, have you tried disabling effects in System > Preferences > Appearance > Effects? It may not be Compiz-friendly at the moment.
