mplayer firefox plugin

Postby tsg1zzn on Sat Jan 06, 2007 4:24 pm

I want to disable the mplayer plugin for mp3 files, so that they are instead downloaded when I click a link ending in .mp3 or with that mime type. I do not want to disable the mplayer for other file formats. I have tried to uncheck mp3 in the configuration for the mplayer plugin but it doesn't do anything.

How can do this?

Why don't you just do a right-click on them and then select "Save Target as ... " ? :wink:

1. Because I NEVER want mplayer to handle it. But several times a day I want to download. So it's a waste to constantly right-click.
2. Half of the links are broken. If I click one of these, I get a 404 error page displayed by Firefox, else it should download (currently it's opened by mplayer). If I use Save Link As then it saves the file even if it's a 404 page. Which is very annoying.

There is a web browser that looks and acts like iTunes. Its amazingly great and called songbird. You can get it most easily by installing automatix http://www.getautomatix.com

When you view a page (looks like firefox) it looks at the embed tags of the page and extracts all playable links. It then lists in an iTunes like frame.
