Comment 1 Joshua Bergland 2004-05-21 09:00:12 UTC
I noticed this also ... It is caused by they latest version of mplayer in portage (I am running an ~x86 system) mplayer-1.0_pre4-r2.

I was trying to stream some WMA files from, and Firefox would immediatly crash. I then went back to mplayer-1.0_pre4-r1 and mplayerplug-in is working fine again and I am streaming with no problem.

I'm using the latest gxine now, it works fine.

Aristotle: I'm not sure how gxine is relevant. Do you mean that you've given up on the mplayer and mplayerplug-in combination and are using gxine now?

Joshua: There isn't much functionally different between mplayer 1.0-pre4-r1 and r2. Can you go back to r2 and see if you still have the problem? If you still encounter the crash, can you run your browser from the command line, activate mplayerplug-in debugging and see if any interesting errors are printed right before the browser crashes? Is it all streams or just that one site?

Can you both try the latest version of mplayer (1.0-pre4-r4) and mplayerplug-in (2.66) and see if you still have the same problem?

Thanks guys

Needs the test that kanaka has requested.
