Hi,
Anyone has this problem, while playing movies file ( like mov, avi, rm ) click on the back button on mozilla will take sometime to go back to the previous page (more than 7-10 second). But it does not happen when the movies file is finished played.

Mplayer using

Hi Mu,
For me the stop button also behave the same. So did some debug, and look like the mplayer plugins is waiting for something to handled the quit. it look like some bug/require some tuning.

There is a newer version at
http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/download.php version 3.25

To save some time to see if this version solve the problem i downloaded the binary build for Fedora Core 4 and extracted the file and put it to the plugins directory. Now, I can do back button while playing no problem.
Not sure if these binary will give any problem or not.

If it is not take too much of time, could someone recompile the new version and make it to dotpup file.

thanks

I am guessing that the big mplayer dotpup update I see is the one mentioned here -- just downloaded and loaded it.

There is also a 1k bugfix for mplayer but since it is undated and unlabeled it is impossible to determine if it is new, old, necessary, or trouble.

Perhaps we need a labeling protocol for pupgets and dotpups to make each item as minimally obscure as possible?

I could spend several hours plowing through the Forum hoping to get lucky enough to read the right snipet of the right thread to guess if that 1k dotpup is relevant ... but if that is what it takes it sure won't contribute to our efforts to promote Puppy.

Just a thought late in the evening on an unhappy tummy and wrestling Puppy & SeaMonkey into playing x-quicktime streaming video.

Sorry to sound as sour as my stomach!

OK, now when I go here
http://www.charlestoncrystalball.com/cams.html
and click on Snapper Jack's it at least tries to work (that is an improvement), but then I get "Stopped".

When I click on The Pour House it starts "Initializing" but never completes the task.

I get one or the other of those results for every Web cam selection there.

Anyone else get a different result?

What do I try now, please?

I think I am running Puppy 1.7 but it just occurred to me that I don't know where to look to know what version of Puppy I am running (except at boot)! System Information does not display that info. I am running SeaMonkey 1.0

Thanks! doc

If you can't see them then they must really be broken! Smile

Can you suggest several typically troublesome sites that the updates solve so that I could go there and test to be sure I have everything in place?

Thanks! doc

If my codecs are installed, you should be able to see the videos.

If you see a video in the mozilla plugin, and click the "back"-button in mozilla, it should not "hang" for 7-10 seconds.
If it does not hang, the 3.25 -update was installed correctly.

Without the update, mozilla hangs or freezes a moment, and you can't do anything with it.

I have your version of mplayer, the 3.25 update, and the extra codecs installed.

BBC tries to load then hangs.

It worries me that there are so many loose pieces -- is there a dotpup that is maintained with the most recent versions of your mplayer, updates, codecs, etc?

That way there is never a question if one has the complete and most up to date mplayer package for Puppy.

I would think this would also eliminate much of the back and forth for mplayer, xzine, and many other apps -- just direct folks to the dotpup -- they re-install and you know that they have every single piece of the mix.

If it doesn't work then you have a consistent place to start, otherwise you are left to guess in every single case if one of the elements did not get installed or was installed in the wrong order, etc.

I really hate to see all of the terrific developers spending so much time going over and over the same stuff with many different users when it appears to be possible to simply the interaction considerably.

The time saved could then go to developing new stuff vs rehashing the old.

I think that I have tweaked until things are now twisted.

My Puppy has become psychotic and uncooperative.

EDIT: Turns out much of the problem was a HDD about to crash ... and it did. Sad
$490. via a Canadian co, $1100+ via several USA companies if I want to recover several
months of inadequately backed up data ... sigh.

Accessing a Java site brings up the Java window and then stalls -- have to Kill the job which crashes SeaMonkey, then have to reboot.

SeaMonkey not only cannot recover enough to be restarted but does not remember what was open when restarted -- it really would be nice to have the open Internet sites and E-mails automatically recalled after a crash. I have seen that elsewhere, I think under SuSE.

Simple streaming audio no longer works.

Web pages that used to play streaming video no longer work.

SeaMonkey occasionally crashes under a variety of conditions.

Think I will back up to an external HDD, wipe, and do a complete re-install.

Is 2.0 close enough to ready for me to load a recent BETA?

On this machine I am not worried about small and would prefer a really complete install where everything plays well together.

Thanks! doc
