what you can do, i believe, to see these, is install mplayer and all the extra codecs from mplayerhq.hu and also install plugger, which uses your installed applications to provide embedded video in your browser.

I believe mplayer and plugger are available through apt, but you will probably have to manually download the qt codecs and copy them into /usr/lib/win32 yourself.

This works for me, or at least i can see a good few embedded videos in my browser (firefox) but not all of course, i think the ones i can't see are DRM wmvs though.

Hope this helps, and good luck.

FYI
http://libquicktime.sourceforge.net/

That doesn't answer your question (it's not a player), but it'd be a good thing to have it anyway.

I use mplayerplug-in + mplayer + codecs for every format under the sun. I have used plugger in the past and it's good too. mplayerplug-in would probably be the quickest way to get what you want. I think it's in several repositories but I am using the one from the atrpms repo.

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.

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

that's where they should go alright. mplayer and xine should both be able to pick them up there. i didn't know you could apt-get those codecs!

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 ...

that's an idea... i might be about to say something very dumb, but if you download the codecs tarball from mplayer, the codecs are contained within subdirectories. You can't just untar the contents into /usr/lib/win32, you actually have to put the files themselves into /usr/lib/win32. eg:

Code: Select all

cd /usr/lib/win32
mv */*.* .

I guess the video wouldn't play either if he'd done that and he claims to have video but no sound.

i did move the files into the folder instead of untarring them into the folder
