Hi. I've just installed the mplayer plugin from Yum, but it doesn't show up in about:plugins in Firefox. Can anyone help me out here?

what do you see when you type:
ls /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/

any sign of mplayerplug-in.so and friends???

iamroot, have you had a look here (http://www.mjmwired.net/resources/mjm-fedora-f8.html#mediaplayers)? Miranda notes 'Browser Plugin Issues: Please run the following if the MPlayer browser plug-in does not load'.

Hi. I ran the command and got this message:

*** NSPlugin Viewer *** ERROR: libxpcom.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory

Try


su
yum install libxpcom.so

Hi Leigh, isn't libxpcom.so part of FireFox?. I don't see that it's available through yum?

Yes it is , so the command will install firefox, I suspect the O/P is using 64 bit
