    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video How-to

    Thanks for the great How To! For me, it all works except when trying to watch the CBC "The National" http://www.cbc.ca/national/latestbroadcast.html. mplayer pops up, buffers, and then stops. BBC works fine, all US network news streams (flash, rp, wm etc.) work fine. Youtube works fine.

    Unfortunately, it's the CBC I'd really like to watch. Ideas?

    firefox versions 2 or 3 (doesn't seem to matter)
    Intel P4
    Hardy for Intel
    kubuntu (kde3)
    32 bit codecs installed

    Do you have MPlayerplug-in or Gecko Media Player installed? Did you press play and/or reload the page when it stopped?

    Basically once I log into my account I need to see a page like the one featured here: http://www.mercurygate.com/shipper_s...gle_place.html
    Again its a jsp page.

    I have an idea. Some still say Java5 performs better:

    sudo apt-get remove sun-java6-bin sun-java6-fonts sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin && sudo apt-get install sun-java5-bin sun-java5-fonts sun-java5-jre sun-java5-plugin

    Then restart Firefox.

    I had to revert back to mplayerplug-in since gecko crashed the ff session. Yep, clicked on Play several times --- same result. Reloading the page restores the image in the video window, but pressing play results in the same thing.

    It's a shame you can't use Gecko Media Player, as it plays cbc.ca streams without a hitch in Ubuntu. Try changing the "noembed=0" option to "1", then restart Firefox. The stream may work better when not embedded.

    Did that too, but it brings up a question. /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf is present, but with all lines commented out. $HOME /.mplayer/ mplayerplug-in.conf is what I have been editing.

    vo=x11
    ao=alsa
    cachesize=512
    cache-percent=50
    dload-dir=/home/ted
    showtime=1
    enable-wmp=1
    enable-qt=1
    enable-rm=1
    enable-gmp=1
    enable-dvx=1
    enable-mpeg=1
    enable-mp3=1
    enable-ogg=1
    enable-midi=1
    enable-pls=1
    enable-smil=1
    enable-helix=1
    nomediacache=0
    nopauseonhide=0
    rtsp-use-tcp=1
    rtsp-use-http=0
    showlogo=0
    black-background=1
    noembed=1

    Should I be editing the file in /etc instead?

    I replaced java6 with java5 and - amazingly - it works. Actually in the beginning I got the regular 'please wait' display after the page loaded (and nothing else), got really frustrated and navigated to another page, and then I went back to the jsp page to take a screenshot of it to post it over here to make my problem as clear as possible and lo and behold the frames were displayed in all of their jsp glory.

    I wonder if this would have happened had I left java6?

    Thank you!!!

    Now I'm off to find a solution for widget loading/display malfunctions on asp/aspx pages in firefox. maybe u have an idea?

    It doesn't matter. The one in home overrides the /etc one.

    Maybe it's worth testing java6 again.

    Don't know how to help with your widget thing.

    Re: Comprehensive Multimedia & Video How-to

    Excellent guide but how do I get audacious to show up in firefox preferences. I want it to be the default media player in firefox.

    I also set it as the default in System > Preferences > Preferred Applications > Multimedia > Custom > audacious

    Odd that is is not in that drop down list either. Lame!

    Update: Edit > Preferences > Applications > MP3 ShoutCast Playlist > User Other > /usr/bin/audacious
