i have an mp3 server which serves up .pls files. i want those to be
played by xmms. here's how i did it - hope it helps.
- browse the website and click on the link to stream the media
- SAVE THE OFFERED FILE TO THE DESKTOP (or somewhere else convenient)
- right-click said file on the desktop and choose properties
- go to the open with tab and choose the app you want to use
- click close
- go back to firefox and click on the link again
ta-da! i renamed my pls file to m3u and did the same thing to get m3u
files playing with xmms too. then i did mp3s the same way.
(something is very disjointed between Gnome, Ubuntu, Firefox, who is the
default handler of what file types and who respects that "default
handler" status imho.)
or did you mean to stream the media into a plugin embedded in the page?
plugins suchas mplayer-mozilla, mozilla-plugin-vlc and totem-mozilla
will help you there.
