Plugin for application/x-mplayer2

Hi,

I am trying to watch a streaming channel and I keep getting the error message which says I need to install a plugin for application/x-mplayer2. The page then takes me to the following link in microsoft.com :

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/download/alldownloads.aspx

Now Windows Media Player 11 is working fine on my laptop: on both Internet Explorer and Firefox where I can watch the streaming just fine. Since K-Meleon is based on Firefox, I am not sure why I am getting this error.

Thanx

-Gct

From here Disupted's K-Meleon Tools you can get one of these two plugins for whichever system you have.


Media Player Plugin 9X systems

Media Player Plugin for NT/XP

extract whichever one you need to your plugins folder

everything from windows 2000 has been built on NT so that includes XP,Vista and Win 7. Sorry I forgot to inclue Vista. If it works let me know.

I went ahead and downloaded both and copied them to :

C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\kplugins

&

C:\Program Files\K-Meleon\plugins

Is this correct? I restarted K-Meleon but the issue is still there.

I don't know if this will work but it has for some people go to www.dll-files.com and get these two files

npdsplay.dll
npwmsdrm.dll


place those in your plugins folder. Let me know if it works

That's true. But some of the websites that I frequent, K-Meleon requires requires me to send the pages to Trident Render; which spoils the fun of browsing. Only IE works fine with every site I visit.

But then K-Meleon is much faster ... smiling smiley
