Title: MPlayer, mplayer-plugin [SOLVED]
Post by: macondo on March 01, 2016, 05:28:01 pm
I can't watch a certain type of video in pbs.org/frontline. Checking the forums for different distros I found in one, the addition of mplayer and its plugin solved the problem in FF, Midori, and chromium.

Is there a way to get these so i can install them?

Thanks,

mind to give more info what mplayer plugin is missing?
I assume you are using VL 7.1 and I saw mplayer-1.1.1 is in the repo...did you install it?

My bad! I search for 'mplayer' instead of MPlayer, it's already installed. the plugin is supposed to be 'mplayer-plugin'
unless i mispelled it. I also installed the w32codecs package just in case., I also looked for vlc...

Enable the untested repo, and disable all others. Disabling the others is important in this case.
Code: [Select]
slapt-get -u
slapt-get -i flashplugin hal-flash
Then set repo selection back to normal (without untested) and slapt-get -u again.

The thing to note is whether it updates flashplugin.

If that sets you straight in mozilla-based browsers, remember not to allow flashplugin to be "upgraded" without insuring that it really is a later version.

No clue for chromium.

You hit the nail on the head. I corrected the typo and everything is hunky-dorry :D
Although, the original problem with flash persists.

"Untested". What I failed to pick up is that you've changed machines, haven't you? That would make "Enable the untested repo" an invaild instruction. It has to be written in for a fresh 7.1 install. Make this your only enabled SOURCE line, temporarily:
Code: [Select]
SOURCE=http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/untested/veclinux-7.1/x86_64/( above edited since first post to show full line, not just URL)

And you need the security updates there too, so change the install procedure a bit:
Code: [Select]
slapt-get -u
slapt-get --upgrade
I'm gonna guess you looked in that repo already and didn't see flashplugin. It's been moved back in now, for a limited time.

Remember to re-enable the regular repos, disable untested, and do slapt-get -u again so your listings will be normal. For entertainment only, look at 'slapt-get -s -i flashplugin'. It will simulate "upgrade" of flashplugin to an older version.

Please comment on whether flashplugin works for your firefox, etc, here.
A word about how well you can connect to websites, etc, after the other updates this brought in would be nice, too, and that would go here: http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=18919.msg105061#msg105061 (http://forum.vectorlinux.com/index.php?topic=18919.msg105061#msg105061)

I'm confused. I have not changed machines.

That would make "Enable the untested repo" an invaild instruction. It has to be written in for a fresh 7.1 install.
I don't have any "untested" repo, just "testing" as pasted at the beginning.

@roarde:
I did the 'sudo slapt-get -u' and 'sudo slapt-get --upgrade' with no results whatsoever, (after commenting everything, except the 'untested' line I added as per your request.
Right now i commented the "untested" and uncommented the rest, back to normal. I did not install any flashplugin.
Problem continues,

Yep, and it works on VL 7.1, too. Grab it from the untested repo and restart your browser. If you have the source url correct (note edit in prior post), but have trouble downloading the package itself, try again after doing 'slapt-get --clean'

That's why it took a bit for me to reinstall -- I had a cached copy of a different filedate and it took me a while to remember --clean.

You do need to make sure patches is temporarily disabled while you grab the one from untested.

With only untested enabled, you don't need to specify the version. It'll grab the latest, which is correct.

slapt-get -i flashplugin

"flashplugin" as one word, no hyphen

slapt-get -u && slapt-get --upgrade?

Midori and Chromium do not open the link, just Firefox, FWIW.
Title: Re: MPlayer, mplayer-plugin
Post by: roarde on March 02, 2016, 08:29:11 pm
Firefox, SeaMonkey, Midori, and Xombrero use this plugin, not so sure Chromium does.
Firefox, SeaMonkey, and Xombrero can view that vid with the latest plugin.
Both Midori itself and our build of it are problems no one has had time to tackle yet.
As far as I can see, getting Chromium built right is a struggle everywhere. Can be done, but once it is the exact details of how have to be revised again due to changes in the code or its configure system.

Thanks for reporting exactly how and when it's working there.

I've been using this plugin almost since it originally dropped into untested. It's ready to move.
Title: Re: MPlayer, mplayer-plugin
Post by: roarde on March 02, 2016, 09:04:29 pm
Installed chromium and tried that on the vid. Somewhat slower connection here; it skips a bit at first, but works.

Removed google-chrome, flashplugin, hal-flash, and MPlayer. Video still played in chromium both before and after restarting it.

chromium-31.0.1650.57-i586-2vl71
Title: Re: MPlayer, mplayer-plugin
Post by: macondo on March 02, 2016, 09:29:53 pm
CORRECTION

Chromium - nothing
Midori - yes!  I tried again and it worked.

Aparently the problem has NOT been solved.
This weekend I replaced my hd with a new one, did a fresh install of VL7.1 Light, updated/upgraded but did not get the latest flashplugin specified at the beginnning of this thread. Therefore, I was unable to open the afore mentioned videos in
pbs.org/frontline. I thought the problem was solved.

I inserted the 'untested' repo but the latest flashplugin was not there, so I was stuck. What gives? Is there something I am not aware of?

Respectfully,

Title: Re: MPlayer, mplayer-plugin [SOLVED]
Post by: roarde on March 16, 2016, 12:11:37 am
While you were installing, The Vendor has bumped the flashplugin version. There has not yet been time to build the new version for the repos. It'll get there soon, I think.

For those who wish not to wait:                  (where "<tab>" is indicated, use tab completion to fill in version, etc.)
Do this from your home directory or so. It's important to not do it from a subdirectory of /usr/doc/flashplugin-*
Code: [Select]
mkdir -p flashplugin/src
cd flashplugin/src
cp /usr/doc/flashplugin<tab>/flashplugin.SlackBuild ./
chmod +x flashplugin.SlackBuild
su -lm
VERSION=11.2.202.577 ./flashplugin.SlackBuild
# The source is fetched, the package is built
upgradepkg  --install-new ../flashplugin<tab>
exit      # to leave "su"
Restart browser.

You may want to leave these directories and the SlackBuild in place for next time. The package and downloaded source will have to be deleted for that to work. If you're doing this for both 32- and 64-bit machines, generating the package for each on each machine (or one of the same arch) is simplest (but not necessarily easiest).

In almost all cases -- in fact, all cases so far -- just downloading the package from The Vendor and extracting "libflashplugin.so" to /usr/lib(64)/mozilla/plugins/libflashplugin.so works. Building the complete package should catch the odd case where something else changes, and is easier to explain in the forum than the exact URL to grab for your arch, and so on. The SlackBuild detects and handles that stuff for you.

It actually should be
Code: [Select]
flashplugin-11.2.202.577-x86_64-1vl71It's been updated since .569 and I'm gonna guess firefox requires .577 now. But I haven't checked.
The "flash-plugin-*-1gv" is from a different linux distribution; I helped confuse you on that already, remember?  :P

There's a method for grabbing packages from untested which I sent you in forum pm quite some time ago. Check back in your inbox. If it's not there, let me know and I'll re-send. So the rest of you know, that method is confusing out-of-context and isn't appropriate for public distribution.

The new flashplugin is indeed available in untested and needs testing before being moved to regular repos. If you lost the untested URL line during your HD move, here it is (for 64-bit) again:

Post by: roarde on March 18, 2016, 10:01:30 pm
For SeaMonkey, after installing HTML5 Video Everywhere, you may want to also install the addon "True Full Screen in SeaMonkey". SeaMonkey handles full screen differently, and this addon is needed to allow the HTML5 viewer's full screen control to work. More info under the addon's "more info" section.
Title: Re: MPlayer, mplayer-plugin [SOLVED]
Post by: roarde on March 18, 2016, 10:43:29 pm
It's encouraging that so many sites have enabled HTML5 video. Unfortunately, there are still too many that insist on flash. For those, you still need flashplugin.

Flashplugin .577 is working OK on those sites. Keep in mind that there are some sites which insist on a later version of flash (instead of the latest patch). The Vendor has decided that thou shalt worship MS or Google, or no new flash for you.

you need to add the untested repo to your sources manually

@wigums:
I added the untested repo to my sources and installed flashplugin .577 and it is working perfectly, thank you.

Now, there are 3 users who have tested flash .577 (you, me, and roarde) and it's working, how many more have to test it in order for it to be moved to the regular repos?
This was the same situation a week ago, your answer was a drawing I couldn't understand. Please clarify this.
Should I refrain from update/upgrade as usual, every morning? Which is what got me in trouble last time, something wrong in the patch repo, IIRC.

Regards,

Yeah, I know you asked wigums, but I happen to know this one.

A new admin has been added for the regular (packages, extra, patches) repos just to take care of issues like this. There will be a short get-acquainted period for that person, after which timely moves to patches and such will occur regularly.

In the meantime, you may wish to forgo regular updates and only update specific packages you know about. Will become regular sometime in the coming week, please stand by.

Hi wigums, now that I know what it was (bad eyesight), I understand. Thanks for all the help.
