Multimedia :: mplayer plugin note

Just tried mplayer plugin from the testing area, found Firefox-2.0 still wanted to download a non-existent quicktime plugin after restarting and visiting a quicktime streamed video page.

After unpacking the extension and putting the .xpt and .so files contained therein into /home/dsl/.mozilla/plugins, and restarting FF, quicktime streams then played in the browser without problems.

EDIT: Or rather it looks like it would play, if enough of the stream would arrive over this slow connection to start playing!
