MPlayer, mplayer-plugin [SOLVED]
« 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,

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.

I followed your instructions to the letter, commented the repos except Testing, updated, when it came to install the packages, I got this error:
"No such package:flashplugin" . 

Code: [Select]

I updated...

Do you have a typo in your sources? (note 'og' instead 'org')

Yes!
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

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.

Make this your only enabled SOURCE line, temporarily:
Code: [Select]
http://vlcore.vectorlinux.com/untested/veclinux-7.1/x86_64/

@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,
