Re: CNN video with Sarge & Firefox???

I'm running sarge and have:

ftp://ftp.nerim.net/debian-marillat/ sarge main

with mplayer and plugger installed.  When I launch the cnn video window,
mplayer doesn't run.  plugger does launch the process, e.g. from ps:

plugger-5.1.3 24832,1,41,52428840,0,0,468,297 mplayer -quiet -cache 8192 -vop pp -autoq 99 -nojoystick -nofs -zoom -osdlevel 1 -xy $xsize -wid $hexwindow "$url" >/dev/null 2>/dev/null </dev/null

I probably have something misconfigured, but don't know what.  However,
mplayer does work properly on the test movies at the "plugger testing ground" site.

Any ideas?  If this works for you folks, then I'm stumped.

Does anyone know how to get this to work properly?

You need to get the mplayer plugin.

...mmmmmmmmm....had some time ago some problem that looks like an equivalent of yours. i de-installed the mplayer from nerim.net, got rid of all mplayer-files. after that i compiled the mplayer-sourcecode from the hungarian mplayer site *after* i installed the plugins in /usr/lib/win32 (if i remember well). i started compiling mplayer with: $ ./configure --enable-gui --disable-rtc

after having completed the installation of the other,'hungarian' mplayer on my machine all troubles were gone.

maybe a suggestion for you??
