On Debian you can :twisted:
Plus it has the huge advantage of being an upgradeable package so when a new codec is added the package is updated along with the rest of the distro ...

I apt-get installed them but if I remember correctly you had to put them under /usr/lib/win32

Using Seamonkey (Mozilla) with the mplayer-plugin and the win32 codecs and I have sound and video watching that feed.
Have you tried playing with the audio output from mplayer? (under preferences)
I had issues in the past where I had to select oss even though I was using alsa as a sound system.

Seamonkey is the continuation of the Mozilla suite.
The development of Mozilla stopped at version 1.8 I think, that's where Seamonkey picked up and they're now at 1.1 beta.

Anybody using Seamonkey here?

I just installed the 1.1 beta version and it rocks, though I must say I've never really been a firefox fan and always kept using the Mozilla until Seamonkey came out and replaced it.

Now when you hover the tabs in your browser window you thumbnails of the page, really neat :D

You're not missing anything but what I find interesting in this kind of products is that you don't actually need to have a noisy pc running to record tv shows.
It looks really sexy and is standalone, you record with just a push of a button and store on whatever external media you want ....

It's cool that he actually admits that Linus is "right" in this case and that his reaction could have been somewhat tainted by the crap he's exposed to on a daily basis. For the kernel devs it might not be an issue about two tiny graphics drivers but judging by all the comments the end users clearly...

Non-GPL Linux Kernel Modules Banned Starting January 2008?

Seen on OSNews Includes a pretty lengthy answer from Linus himself. I tend to be on the same wavelength and don't see how limiting the user's choice could be good for linux, although I'm sure there are very valid technical reasons to just do what the kernel devs want to do. Make sure you also read t...

Void Main wrote I wouldn't think you should need a tutorial to "apt-get install php-mysql httpd" if you didn't install it at installation time No that's correct, as long as you're 100% sure about what to have and what not to have. In my case I looked at the repositories and I saw tons of apache pac...

If he installed ubuntu desktop he probably won't have mysql installed and neither will he have apache or php. I know I didn't have those installed with my debian workstation netinstall, I had to apt-get all of those. That's why I posted the link to the howto in the first place. If you go for a serve...

I was going to say the same. I can understand going with ubuntu when you want a ready-to-use desktop system (I would pick kubuntu over ubuntu though! :twisted:) but in the case of a server ... If you do a netinstall you can select which type of environment you want and if you want a LAMP server you ...

This is what our IT guys use for inventory purposes.
Not sure that all the functions you need are built-in though, but you can take a look.
I know it works for network and machine administration ...
