Solution for stage6 DivX Video Problem

Postby jbaerbock on Sun Oct 07, 2007 3:59 am

Basically mplayer does not like stage6 DivX format videos so I found the following post solved my problem:

And when viewing normal formats just disable the mentioned plugin :D.

I came across a better solution, which allows you to play it directly in firefox without using extra extensions.
just get the package called mozilla-mplayer from the repos, and then make a few symbolic links from firefox's browser
Code: Select all
cd /usr/lib/firefox/plugins
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/mplayerplug-in-dvx.xpt
sudo ln -s /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/mplayerplug-in-dvx.so


now restart firefox and go to about:plugins page, you should see some message similar to
DivX Browser Plug-In

File name: mplayerplug-in-dvx.so
mplayerplug-in 3.31

Video Player Plug-in for QuickTime, RealPlayer and Windows Media Player streams using MPlayer
JavaScript Enabled and Using GTK2 Widgets

MIME Type Description Suffixes Enabled
video/divx DivX Media Format divx Yes
video/vnd.divx DivX Media Format divx Yes
