       mozpluggerrc - configure file for mozplugger


       MozPlugger is a  Mozilla plugin which can show many  types
       of  multimedia  inside  your  Mozilla. To accomplish this,
       MozPlugger uses external programs such as mplayer,  xanim,
       mtv, timidity and tracker.


       You can configure mozplugger by changing the file mozplug­
       gerrc which can be located in any of the following  direc­


       The  format  of  mozpluggerrc  is very simple. The general
       layout is to have one or more lines describing  mime-types
       followed  by one or more lines describing commands used to
       handle those mime-types. Lines beginning with #  are  con­
       sidered  comments  and are ignored. Here is a simple exam­

            video/mpeg; mpeg; Mpeg video
            video/quicktime; qt; Mpeg video
                 : xanim +W$window -Zr +q +Ze +f $file

       Each line describing a mime type has three fields:

             mime type ; extensions ; description

       mime type
              The mime type is the standardized name for the con­
              tent  type you want MozPlugger to handle. This must
              be the same type as the web server claims the  file
              to  be,  or  MozPlugger  will  not be used for that
              file, regardless of the extension.

              This is a comma separated list of  extensions  that
              should  be  associated  with  this  particular mime
              type. The extensions  are  only  used  when  a  web

       flags  This is a comma-separated list of flags which tells
              mozplugger  how  to handle this particular applica­
              tion. See below for further details.

              This is a command which is  sent  to  /bin/sh  when
              handling this mime type.


       When  MozPlugger  is  called  from  your browser, it looks
       through the configuration file and tries to find a  match­
       ing  mime type.  For an application to be chosen it has to
       fulfill certain criteria, it has to  exist,  and  it  must
       match the flags given to mozplugger.

       When it does, it tries to figure out which command to use.
       First, it looks through all the commands for that particu­
       lar  mime  type  to see if it can find an application that
       has the stream flag. If it cannot find a streaming  appli­
       cation  it  downloads  the file and tries again. Note that
       MozPlugger will check the first word of  the  command  and
       search your $PATH for that command. If that command is not
       found MozPlugger will go to the next line in your mozplug­


       repeat This  indicates  that  the command uses the $repeat

       loop   This indicates that the application loops  forever.
              If  the  <EMBED> tag used to start MozPlugger indi­
              cated that the file should not  loop  forever,  the
              command on this line will not be used.

       many   This indicates that the application can accept sev­
              eral files on the command line, useful  when  loop­
              ing.   Using this option can reduce clicks, choppi­
              ness and machine load, but it is never required.

       stream This indicates that this application  can  take  an
              url.  In this case, the variable $file contains the
              URL of the file to play and the  browser  does  not
              download it.

              This  options  tells  MozPlugger to ignore the exit
              status of the application.

       swallow ( name )
              This  is  the only option that takes an argument so
              far. It will tell mozplugger that  the  application
              will open a window with the specified name and that
              this window will  then  be  moved  to  inside  your

       event_swallow ( name )
              This  option  is  a lighter swallow() that uses X11

       fill   This keyword is used to maximize an swallowed  win­

              This  keyword is used to maximize an swallowed win­
              dow while keeping the width/height ratio  constant.

       nofull This  tells  MozPlugger not to swallow the applica­
              tion if not embeded in a web page.


       MozPlugger gives some variables to /bin/sh  when  starting
       the application, these variables are:

              This  variable  contains  how  many  times the file
              should be  played.   Applications  which  use  this
              variable should also set the repeat flag.

              This  is the X window Mozilla has given the plugin.
              This can be used with applications such as  MPlayer
              to display graphics inside the netscape window.

       $width This is the horizontal resolution in pixels.

              This is the vertical resolution in pixels.

       $file  This  is the file to play.  If the application uses
              the stream flag, this this  variable  contains  the
              URL  of the file to play.  It may also be more than
              one file if you use the many flag.

              This variable contains the mime type of $file.
