mplayer plugin stops instead of playing - bloomberg.com

Postby joec » Tue Nov 25, 2008 3:15 pm

I am trying Mint 5.0 via a live CD. When i try to play clips available at Bloomberg.com mplayer gets a playlist then just stops -- it won't play the clip. I tried each of the video output settings in the configure panel with the same result.

Any ideas?
