To All:

Trying to view http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/browser.htm
which uses quicktime. In another forum, I was suggested to use the
MediaPlayerConnectivity extension for firefox. So I added it. Now,
when trying to view

http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/browser.htm
-> A WHILE AGO

I first get a small xine window w/ a little film icon in the firefox browser.
I click this film icon and showed up, a bigger xine window and another
small window stating

There is no demuxer plugin available to handle
'http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/a/../SIGNS/SIGNS_0/-M0050.MOV
Usually this means that the file format was not recognized.

Am I missing a quicktime plugin for xine or what is my problem?

Bottom line: I want to view quicktime regardless of which browser
I use (even opera is okay). However, I want to avoid using Crossover
because I do not want to pay for it.

What is the easiest approach to get quicktime working on this Xandros
(debian-based) desktop?

Thanks in advance for any tips.

Ok, here's my ad-hoc solution.

There is no problem with xine reading quicktime files,
just problem doing thru the browser. So I didn't bother
to install mplayer/kmplayer - too much work.

I uninstalled MediaPlayerConnectivity and installed
Amazing Media Browser. Now, when I go to

http://commtechlab.msu.edu/sites/aslweb/browser.htm

and click A WHILE AGO

I get nothing from FF. But on FF, I can

tools
-> Amazing Media Browser

a new window with

http://blah, blah, blah

in the top half. I just need to click this and open with xine.
Unfortunately, only a small window opens, video plays, and then
closes. So I need to catch it quickly.

Now, I studying:

- is there a way to make this window bigger?
- can xine be configured to play in slow motion?

I'm running xandros which is debian-based. I forgot about
apt-get - keep looking at the source.

Anyway I got xine working at full screen. Once xine is up, you can

ctrl-f full screen toggle
ctrl-l loop
ctrl-/ repeat
ctrl-q quit

No need to slow down w/ full screen and looping.

Thanks for your help anyway.

Check the mplayer man-page. It has a -speed option, which allows you to play the video anywhere from 0.01-100 times normal speed.
