I would appreciate it if someone could explain the following enigma.

I am running Firefox 1.5.0.8 under FC6. When I look at "about:plugins," I see "Totem Web Browser Plugin 2.16.1. I also see a "yes" for "audio/wav."

Yet when I go to a Web site that has a wav file as background music, the following window pops up:

Totem could not play 'fd://0'.
You do not have a decoder installed to handle this file. You might need to install the necessary plugins.

If ever there was a contradiction, this certainly seems to be one. The plugin is installed and enabled, yet the error window says that it is not. What in the world is going on?

Thanks.

Bill

Here's some additional information. Now I can't get the Totem error message to come up.

The following site has a wav file as background music.

http://katesmith.org/

When I go there, no music is played, and no messages are displayed. It's as if there were no background music.

Again, the Firefox plugins claim that Totem should be able to play this music. Why doesn't it?

Thanks.

delete all totem files from /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

(as root)
yum install mplayer*
