My linux version is Red Hat Enterprise Linux WS release 3 (Taroon Update 9)
My firefox version is
My mplayer version is MPlayer 1.0rc2-3.2.3
My mplayer plugin version is 3.55
I downloaded the win32 codecs and put them in /usr/lib/win32 and verified that the wmv codecs are there.
Downloaded a wmv file and played it from the command line with mplayer with no problems.
Found a page that plays an embedded WMV file but it does not work. Firefox says I need another plugin.
Checked about:plugins and firefox does see my mplayer plugin but it does not seem to support WMV files. I did not see WMV in the list of suffixes for mplayerplug-in 3.55
Any help is greatly appreciated.
