Default Firefox mplayerplug-in problem

I used to be able to view Nasa-tv
(http://www.nasa.gov/multimedia/nasatv/) in Firefox with
mplayerplug-in. This no longer works however. The plug-in starts to
connect then says "Stopped" for any method (windows, realplayer, or
quicktime) chosen.

I feel that it is a changed use flag but I have the ones that I thought
relevant. Here are my builds for for Firefox, mplayer, mplayerplug-in
and win32codecs:

Does anyone have any suggestions?

You could always try
emerge gecko-mediaplayer gnome-mplayer

Apparently, the gnome-mplayer and mplayerplug-in share the same
author, and he works actively on the former.

If it helps any, I use Seamonkey and get the same error.* I also tried
Konqueror and got the same error.* It doesn't appear to be a browser
based error but something about the plugin itself.



Hope that helps track the problem down.

Thank you for the link, first off! Please do post back any further
results, I'm quite interested in the topic. Also, how were you
generating that list, please?



thanks,

emerge -pv mplayer, for example. Then cut and paste.

Would you please post yours so I can compare my USE flags to yours?

Thank you,

Tony

Ah, the irony. I recently unmerged mplayer because it coincided with
some sort of bonobo-factory process which was causing horrible screen
freezes (I couldn't even ctrl-alt-backspace to logout). Then I unmerged
and re-emerged GNOME as a slapdash solution.

So, at the moment I don't have mplayer. However, your post has inspired
me to try again! At which point, yes, I'll run that command.

You don't want my make.conf, do you?



thanks,

Thufir

FWIW it does exactly the same for me too. I haven't tried it before,
so can't say if it's a new development.

Perhaps if nothing comes to light in the next few days you could
open a bug report?


Good luck,
