--- Quote ---1. Download
http://connie.slackware.com/~alien/slackbuilds/mplayerplug-in/pkg/12.2/mplayerplug-in-3.55-i486-1alien.tgz
2. Extract it to /home/tc using Midnight Commander, emelFM2 or command line.
3. Copy all files

mplayerplug-in-dvx.so   
mplayerplug-in-dvx.xpt   
mplayerplug-in-gmp.so   
mplayerplug-in-gmp.xpt   
mplayerplug-in-qt.so
mplayerplug-in-qt.xpt
mplayerplug-in-rm.so
mplayerplug-in-rm.xpt
mplayerplug-in-wmp.so
mplayerplug-in-wmp.xpt
mplayerplug-in.so
mplayerplug-in.xpt

from /home/tc/usr/lib/mozilla/plugins/ to
Opera:    /usr/local/lib/opera/plugins/
Firefox:  /usr/local/firefox-official/plugins/

4. Download MPlayer-svn-gtk1 extension using appsbrowser.
5. Restart your browser. Now you can test your plugin in this site:
http://ftp.icm.edu.pl/pub/unix/video/mplayer/samples/ogg/Theora/

Tip 1. If you don't want to wait, you can disable stream buffering in mplayerplug-in. Simply click right mouse button on plugin, chose "Configure" and then mark "Play media directly from site (No Caching)"

Tip. 2 If plugin doesn't work smootly in Opera, you have to change Opera PID priority.

Tip 3. If you want to watch YouTube videos without Flash Player, you will have to install this script.
http://userscripts.org/scripts/show/50771

In Firefox, first you must install Greasemonkey add-on, and then install the script.
https://addons.mozilla.org/addon/748

In Opera you have to only download script to /home/tc/ and then set in Opera Preferences directory when you place it.
Tools > Preferences > Advanced > Content > JavaScript Options... > User JavaScript files
and type /home/tc

I've tried and the correct dir to put the files for firefox is
/usr/local/firefox/plugins/

Thanx for the info about the greasemonkey script.

Instead of the mplayerplug-in I use the mediaplayerconnectivity firefox extension

neonix:
Tip. 4
If someone wants usability similar to MediaPlayerConnectivity. Clearly, if someone wants to play videos in external window, instead of embedded in web browser, here is the solution.


--- Quote ---Extract tarball, and copy mplayerplug-in.conf.new to /etc
Rename it to mplayerplug-in.conf
Now edit it, changing "#noembed=0" to "noembed=1"

Now that I think about it, I remember a plugin to bind external programs for embedded stuff: mozplugger. Will see how it works.

Hi, could you please explain what version of media player do you use with that extension? Because I couldn't make it run.

Thanks,
Alex.
