Firefox & Mplayer - No Video

Postby Arron on Wed Feb 25, 2009 8:01 pm

Im trying to watch some movies on some web pages. It defaults to mplayer in a firefox window, says mplayer plug-in, has time line bar that scrolls and i hear the sound, but no video.

Anyone else with this problem?

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Right click in the MPlayer window, select "configure", at the top you will see "video output", from the drop down menu select "x11", restart your computer and you should have video now.
