In Gnome 2 and or KDE, if you use the Totem Browser Plugin, it should work. It does for me.
I also tried gecko-mediaplayer in Gnome 3, without success.
You guessed it, I don’t have a problem. I’m looking for answers though, please.
So this also works for me. I love to go here and look at the most recent movie trailers shown in full screen. You can not get this to work in a normal Windows setup, at all. There was a short time a month or so ago when it stopped working in Linux, but I think it was due to some work going on at the Web site. Don’t get mad Carl, but just what are you asking for here? By that I mean, is this a multimedia check, or some perceived problem? Its for sure your multimedia must be setup properly and you need to install Totem, which you might not do if you only installed KDE, but I always install Totem. This subject is of interest to me as it is one of the tests I perform to check out a PC multimedia setup.
I know the ropes. All was seemingly good.
I was using Gnome 3 upgraded from a previous 11.4 Gnome 2 install. Apple playback failed.
Rolled back to Gnome 2 and all was good again.
Hence the question. I’ll run a test on the Milestones as we progress with those and see how it all behaves.
Yes, I use Totem, even in kde. It’s in my oneclick
Ah so, then the issue is something going on with Gnome 3 then and its version of Totem? Right? I have not yet installed Gnome 3 though I do assume it will come with openSUSE 12.1 when it comes out. I seldom use Gnome except to determine some problem with a fellow forum user. And again, just trying to see if I could help in some way.
Figured it out, Problem was gecko-mediaplayer. Having it in gnome 2 was OK but not in gnome 3, it was taking over my FF prefs to use totem.
That is very interesting to know that. I have not been loading gecko-mediaplayer since mplayer2 came out. I wonder if anyone else has noticed this issue? I can say that not all that many people seem to indicate that they make a regular visit to the Apples iTunes movie trailer web site, but I go there just about every week. Even though the wife and I go to some movies, it is not as often as I wished we could. Looking at the trailers is helpful later when the final release comes out on DVD. In fact, tonight we will be looking at the DVD movie Sucker Punch and we saw Rango last weekend, both of which I did spy first at the iTunes site. It (playing the DVD) works like a champ on my HTPC running openSUSE 11.3 so far as well as looking to the future movie releases at iTunes.
