I’m trying to view the quicktime content on this site but all I see is a black box where the content is supposed to appear. I have the gecko-mediaplayer and gnome-mplayer plugins installed. Can other KDE users confirm that they can or can’t see the content. I want to establish if the problem is with my setup, the web site or the plugin.
When I click on that link, FF starts and shows the page. In it’s center is a rectangle that shows the maïs backgound vague and has some text. Using Noscript I then admitted incredientfilms.com (not admitting* addthis.com* and* twitter.com*) and then the six texts within laurels below start to blink. Is that what you want to see?
@Denver, I looked at that link you posted and was able to play the video that the OP had problems with. I have everything installed that is listed in the Restricted Formats Installation Guide that caf posted.
I wonder if the site is broken because when I try download that mov it is only 37Kb.
Wel, I am afraid I am not able to insert an image. maybe I have to go back to school).
In that case I will describe it. I have the same as you. but the black rectangular is not there, the image continues all over where you have te black square. But there is no movie running, if that is what you expected.
Well I just tried it on a friends XP machine and it plays fine. It plays a ~3min trailer that streams without problems with the Quicktime plugin for FF in Windows XP. So it seems that the Linux plugin is broken.
@hcvv, I wasn’t able to insert an image either. I had to host the image and then link to it.
Ahhh, it must be one of those special “Designed for Windows 7” web sites
It really irks me when sites are not designed to conform with open standards. What’s the point of alienating a part of your audience? If you go to the effort to design a site surely you’d want to make sure everyone can see it - no? Sorry rant over. I’ll send them an e-mail informing them of their error.
Thanks for checking caf. At least I know it’s not my setup and can move on.
Hmmm, it seems my setup isn’t quite right as I can’t play the Apple Trailers either. I might try the the totem browser plugin but I don’t really want to start filling my KDE system with gnome stuff so may decide to just give it a miss and ignore quicktime stuff.
The mplayer plugin usually works fine for me with quicktime video files - like the apple movie trailor website but no joy with this site. Even trying to run the file direct (from http://www.ingredientsfilm.com/mov/vid_thumb.mov) using mplayer, xine or vlc doesn’t work.
