I understand that this isn't exactly an unknown problem, but I've tried the things I've read about, such as editing mimeTypes.rdf. Does anyone have ideas about how to have Firefox hand a stream, such as a pls fom shoutcast, off to amarok AND successfully get amarok to play it? I'm not sure where the problem lies.
KDE has been configured to go to amarok for pls. mimeTypes.rdf has been edited to make Firefox always ask which program to open for files of mimetype x-scpls. Indeed, it even seems to hand off, at least partially, to amarok. There are, however, two problems:
1) amarok will see but not play the stream. It gives a statement about connecting to the stream. The equalizer graphic indicates it is doing something, then goes back to the state indicating that nothing is being done.
2) clicking on option to open in the Firefox downloads window STILL launches Totem. Totem then complains about needing a plugin.
