 Post subject: Mozilla/videolan plugin
PostPosted: Thu Jan 20, 2005 4:52 pm 
Hello -
We are at the social centre in manchester - trying to
set up a video server.

The server is running debian, apache and what would be
ideal is for users on the clients running blag to be
able to click on the links, and view streaming the
mpg1, avi, etc files in Video Lan.

At the moment it does stream in Mozilla which is
dandy. But not fullscreen.

the there is a mozilla-vlc-plugin about but not one
for redhat it appears.

Do you have any idea how to best go about letting out
punters look at video full screen from the server
without having to download the file.

cheers
mick

It seems they also have a source rpm for that plugin. Tonight when I get home I'll build up some rpms and we'll see what happens.

mozilla should be able to stream it fine with mplayer. At full-screen too.

You can set configs for mplayer to make it full rez. In the users' homedirs there's ~/.mplayer/ or for system-wide changes, /etc/mplayer . I prefer mplayer to vlc under blag, fwiw.

yeah, i'd have to say I like MPlayer better than VLC.

How do you prevent Mozilla from downloading the file instead of streaming it?

I'm also having a strange experience with xmms

i've set up some m3u files for directories of audio files.

when clicking on that we get the normal mozilla option to download the file, and i set it to open it with xmms -
it does open up xmms but only to the "load files" screen as if you had clicked Add file

thanks for your help

PostPosted: Fri Jan 21, 2005 1:21 pm 
the reason i asked about how to make mozilla play the file in the browser instead of asking to download it is that
for some reason come of our boxes are playing it in the window
and some ask to download it

i find mozilla difficult to work with Helper applications

I'll look at the cofig file now I know it's there and report back
many thanks for help

Hi there -

I spent ages on this and no joy at all
Please help with a basic way of making it work!
i couldn't find a way of making it work at all

I found no config files for mplayer the directory you mention was blank.
is mozpluggerrc relevant?

nice one
mick

You running 10k, yeah? This should do it (if you have some of these installed already, then leave them out):

Code:
apt-get update
apt-get install mplayer mozplugger mpg321


Then restart mozilla. It should "just work".

got some progress

I deleted the Helper Applications in Mozilla which on some machines had been set to download and then open in Mplayer.
I don't know how that happened -
and then I came across this.

You may need to delete your local $HOME/.mozilla/pluginreg.dat file for mozplugger to be enabled correctly. (It will get regenerated).

I did need to do that before the Mpegs started to stream in the broswer window.

But it still wasn't able to go full screen.

So then I edited the Mozplugger config file
here
/etc/mozpluggerrc

i changed the -nofs to -fs
but this didn't change the behaviour.

So can anyone help on this either to
a) get the video to display full screen in browser.
b) launch mplayer in a seperate window and stream so Full screen can be selected.

Ta.
Mick.

Ps - The computers here are really busy and I'm learning loads!

Cool. Sounds like you're figuring out quite a bit. :)

If /etc/mplayer config file is being ignored, it could be that the users' ~/mplayer/ config files are overriding it.
