Re: Howto Install 32 bit Firefox with Flash w/sound and Java for AMD64
I wanted to let everyone having mplayer-plugin issues in on a temporary fix for Mozilla-based browsers. I installed Iceweasel 32-bit and was able to get Flash and Java working, but I couldn't get the mplayer-plugin to get past 99% for streaming video. I searched the forums for at least an hour and didn't really find a solution. Then I made my way to #ubuntu on irc.freenode.net where someone had a solution that worked: The MediaPlayerConnectivity Browser Extension
Go to http://membres.lycos.fr/sethnakht/ and look for XPI (Exenstion) download. Download the file to the directory of your choice. Once it's done downloading, Click on "Open File" in the "File" menu of your Mozilla-based browser. Find the XPI file you just downloaded. This will install the extension. To configure the extension, restart your web browser. You should now be able to view online streaming content albeit not embedded in the web page. But it's something that works.
