Anyway, I plan to give your VLC pet a whirl and would love help resolving how to stream RTSP.

Let me summarise how I now understand this whole business, thanks to your patient assistance. Laughing Laughing Laughing

There are various protocols that we may wish to accommodate, including http, rtsp, mms, & pnm. Of these, the browser itself understands only http protocol. When we wish to process any of these other protocols, we (i) need to install an application that understands that particular protocol, and (ii) we need to inform the browser of this application's name so the browser can delegate the processing of that protocol's data to that application.

My personal interest at this stage is radio streaming (the limitations of my dialip internet access precludes movie streaming).

To satisfy (i) for the rtsp protocol, I installed the HelixPlayer and I can demonstrate its capability of accommodating rtsp this way: in a console type:
helix rtsp://.....

To satisfy (ii) for the rtsp protocol I added three lines in about:config as I am indebted to Dennola4 for showing elsewhere. Yes, that's three** lines for Firefox 3.6 --- whereas only two of those lines were needed in versions before 3.6.

Now that seems clear enough, one would think ..... until I noticed Mplayer playing an rtsp stream before I had added any lines in about:config. So how can Firefox have Mplayer handling rtsp, you may ask? Well, it turns out there is such a thing as transporting rtsp over http, so I guess I must be seeing an example of that. Here it is: http://dynamic.rte.ie/av/live/radio/0708.smil and it doesn't look like an rtsp streaming real audio does it? Question

Now get your head around that! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Twisted Evil

network.protocol-handler.app.rtsp user set string /usr/bin/vlc

network.protocol-handler.external.rtsp user set boolean true

network.protocol-handler.expose.rtsp user set boolean false

That 3rd line provides for you to select the application at run time. Don't change it in any way.

To enable mms streaming as well, repeat the above to create three more statements, but substituting mms for rtsp in each.

Post Script:
Don't leave yet, there's a follow-up to this saga, folks......... Shocked Shocked Very Happy

So I upgraded to Firefox 3.6.8 and added the same 3 lines again for mms support, and similar for rtsp. I restarted FF and, guess what .... ? It didn't work! I restarted again and clicked on a site with an mms:// URL and got the same old "no application associated with that protocol" whine all over again! I restarted FF a few times, still no go. I rebooted, still wouldn't budge. Sad No success for rtsp URLs either.

But have patience. Two days and about 4 reboots later, for no reason known, FF suddenly decided it would begin recognising mms:// URLs. Okay, so it still didn't recognise rtsp:// URLs but I was thankful for small mercies.

Then, two days further on the weather conditions and planetary alignments must have been just to its liking, because FF started to recognise rtsp:// URLs too!!

Whoo Hoo! Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz Razz

The moral of this message is ....... just be patient. It won't work right away; it probably won't work next day; but sooner or later, when you least expect it, FireFox will start working! Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes
