Works perfectly here. I use the mplayer-plugin. CNN will first give me a "Plugin Warning", e.g. that Windows Media Player is not installed ... of course it isn't. I am not even using Windows Clicking onto "Continue to Video" will load the mplayer-plugin and CNN's videos will then play without problem.spiritraveller wrote:CNN Video doesn't work.

When OpenOffice was chosen as the default office suite for Linux Mint two facts came to my attention: the whole suite takes a lot of space and only two of its applications are used a lot by people (word processing and spreadsheet).
In Bea a third application was added simply because people do receive a lot of PPT jokes by email.. from their friends who are still running Windows. And so they need a way to "read" those files.
Cool Beans, thanks. The need is Open Office is a major contender against M$ Office, base is a decent replacement for Access. Having viable alternatives to M$ is needed for Linux to continue to grow.clem wrote:The main concern is the size and the bandwidth, but it's a good point. I suppose these packages should be in the repository. I'll look into that.

BTW, I did follow Alephcat's instructions on how to get BBC and CNN video working, but I sacrificed the ability to see other video with MPlayer. I didn't know how to undo, so I reinstalled Mint.
