I've just come from a website that had mpeg and x-aiff audio files, neither of which Firefox would play. I got the "missing plugins" banner, but when I clicked on install I was told nothing suitable was available.I was able to play the files, by downloading with Download Helper and playing in Rhythmbox, but surely there should be some plugin?
I am running fedora 13 and am having problems installing Java and Adobe Flash player to work on firefox. Whenever I try Java, it says plugin not avalible, and whenever I try Adobe, it says that it failed. Im sorry if this was posted before, I did look for it.
whenever i opened some site that require some flash player plugin to play some video etc.It shows download plug-in when i click on it , firefox can't find respective plugin and there is option for manual install.
In that case i have downloaded flash plug-in from adobe website and install it with package installer.But again showing same problem...means download plug-in .
There is a thread in this forum that points to this website [URL] as a place for good directions on getting the new Java and the new Firefox to cooperate with one another. I followed it and was unable to get that to happen. To test it I used the official U.S. clock website. Don't quite know what to ask, except what did I do wrong? I following the directions to the letter, but in the "aboutlugins" part, Java doesn't show up.
a few days ago, i lost the ability to play videos videos. googlin did no bring any useful solutions. i am using firefox 5 on fedora 15. nspluginwraper (both 32 and 64 bits) is installed. the system is running all the latest updates. flash plugin is working properly, displaying videos on other sites.
When streaming audio, firefox stores files in the cache folder(home/.mozilla/firefox/xxx .default/OfflineCache.However, one the file has finished downloading, it disappears from this folder. Does anyone know where it goes?
I heard all about the awesomeness of Firefox 4 and decided to ditch the old Fedora default one (3.6.16). I put the firefox folder in the .mozilla directory and I run it from there. The problem is that the only plugin I have is the 64-bit Flash plugin (because it is the only one in the plugins folder in the .mozilla directory). I have no idea where the other plugins for things like Adobe Reader an VLC are. If anyone knows Fedora well, I want my plugins to work in the new Firefox.
I have a peculiar problem, that I haven't been able to find any other posts mentioning. Firefox is getting confused over my plugins. about:plugins show an empty list but the plugins tab of the Add-On Manager show them all and says they are enabled.It was working a week ago without any issues whatsoever. Probably an update broke something. Any ideas, anyone? Or people with the same problem?Plugins are Shockwave Flash, Sun Java, VLC media player and others.Firefox 3.6.8Ubuntu 10.04 LTS Lucid Lynx
I am having trouble with a machine running fedora 10. I just upgraded the other day the latest flash via yum and now every time I navigate to someplace such as ..... firefox is telling me that mp3 and flash plugins are needed. I have reset firefox to defaults by moving the .default file and reopening, reinstalled firefox and flash-player-plugin, I have looked in /var/log/messages and found nothing. What the heck is going wrong with this install? Also, it is for all users on the machine.
Restart the firefox and type aboutlugins, the java plugin does not exists. I went to the java website and test to see if jre is install in firefox, but could not detect. This is the permission for the firefox 3.6 dir in the /usr/lib path:
Is it possible to run Windows Firefox plugins/addons under Wine while the browser itself is the native Linux Firefox? For example; I am considering taking the introduction to Linux Open University course, but the course requirements state the need to use Shockwave Player. Obviously Shockwave Player is not available for Linux but it is (allegedly) possible to run both the Windows version of Firefox and Shockwave Player under Wine. I would prefer to run the Linux version of Firefox natively with only the Windows version of Shockwave Player using Wine.
Is there some method to achieve this ? Maybe there is some kind of wrapper application, something like the one used for Windows wireless networking drivers (NDISWrapper) or maybe there are instructions on how to embed the Shockwave Player using Wine in Firefox somewhere. Obviously my needs are quite specific but I am sure that being able to use Windows browser plugins/addons under the Linux version of Firefox would be of interest to at least a few other people.
I'm using 8.10, but wanted to upgrade firefox to the latest version, so I downloaded the tarball from their website and compiled that. FF 3.6 works fine, but I havn't been able to get my flash or java plugins to work since.
the situation was that i had 2 fedora 12 boxen. one played flash videos with sound, and one did not! eventually i found the actual problem, and it was trivially fixed (i don't want to remember the many blind alleys i went into first...).
when i looked at system ==> sound preferences ==> sound and selected the 'applications' tab, i got the line: "no application is currently running or recording audio.", but the mute check box to the right of the 'output volume' slider at the top of the tab was unticked.
however, when i was running a flash video, i had a line: "alsa plug-in (npviewer.bin) ..." with another mute check box on the right that was ticked! unticking this new mute check box, enabled firefox to play videos video's with sound!
I am relatively new to ubuntu and have all sorts of problems. First of all, none of my depositories work, but I'm fine with this. I think it is due to my uni wireless connection, as I haven't been able to update any linux distro here. That's the reason why I couldn't fetch the MPEG 1 Layer 3 (MP3) plugin that Rhythmbox offers me to download. So I looked for alternatives.
I installed some restricted extras package from the official ubuntu databases, but it was only 6 KB (should it be that tiny?) and when I tried again, it still wasn't working.
I recently installed slackware and i really dont know much about it. Or where to get software for it where I can get some .tgs files for plugins for mozilla so I can watch divx avi and other video formats online in my browser

This was my favorite media player because it played all the files I could throw at it. However, in Fedora 12 it fails to run my .avi or .mkv files. I may have forgotten something, like some driver or codec, but movie player plays them well. I have VLC in Mac and it plays the files without question. Am I doing something wrong?
I'm running Fedora and Gnome on a laptop and I'd like to play an audio file. I installed xmms and the mp3 plugin via yum, and started xmms amd tried to play the file. The progress bar advances as if the file is playing, but there's no sound in my headphones. I do have gnome volume slider bar set to the highest value. I tried running alsamixer and the volume is set to the highest level (however +/- causes alsamixer to exit, and not change the volume level like the F1-Help page says). What can I do?I tried the Gnome filesystem browser and clicked on mp3 or wav file which brings up the totem music player. Again, the progress bar advances as if the file is being played, but no sound.
I installed Codeblocks and build some programs, but I have two questions:1. Where are my header files placed, since I don't know where codeblocks is installed. Soemetimes I have to remove header file extension (.h) to be able to compile some source. I use gcc as setting for codeblocks to compile and build programs.2. Plugins for Codeblocks can be installed, but when browse codeblocks's wiki I can't find download links neither developer pages
