Flash on Mplayer
July 27, 2009 10:42AM
Hi,
I tried to play a flash video that I downloaded on mplayer, but in elive mplayer won't play flash videos. I also use another linux distro, and mplayer will play flash videos in that distribution. What do I need to add to elive to enable mplayer to play this type of video in elive? I am using Elivecd development version 1.9.37.

By the way, the method that I use to obtain the videos is to start playing the video that I desire in my browser. Then I go to /tmp and look for the flash video file. When it is completely downloaded but before it is finished playing I copy the /tmp/flashwhatever file to somewhere else and it stays permanently on the computer then in the new location, but not in /tmp.

Hi!
I tried to reply but the system told me:

So I sent you an email.

Have fun.

Thanks

It seems the mailadress you've left in your Userprofile is not correct.

Hi,
I've double checked the email address, it is my email address and it is a valid address. I am not sure why it isn't going through. Maybe you can just put some *** in place of some of the letters in the offending word and do the post here on the forum. That way I hopefully will be able to figure out what you are saying and the computer won't ding you for using the offending word.

Thanks

Hi,
yes, I received the email. I have been too busy to give it a try, but I think that it will and I will post back to let you know.

Thanks

Hi,
I tried out what you told me to do, but I am sorry to report that it didn't work. Would you possibly have some other ideas?



Thanks

That is weird.
Because on my machines it works perfectly.
How about joining #elive IRC channel on irc.freenode.net and asking for help?
There are lots of people having better knowledge than I do.

See you at the Chat!
