View Full Version : Using Wine for browser plugins

I am working on migrating from Red Hat 9 to FC5.

I had been using "Crossover Plugin" under Red Hat 9 to use the Quicktime and WMP browser plugins. Crossover Plugin is several years old, and has been replaced by Crossover Office.
Both are Wine-based.

What I was wondering is if you could use vanilla Wine and install these programs as browser plugins (for linux-native browsers), or if that is a feature unique to Crossover? I could update to Crossover Office, but I notice that Wine has matured quite a bit, and I'd like to start using it. I'm worried that using Wine and Crossover will conflict with each other.

Thanks
