Just tried Konqueror with the 64 bit mplayer plugin. got sound but no pic.
x86-64 mozilla can't see the plugin and neither can firefox 1.0.6 with the
(x86-64) add on note in the "about ff" screen. then i tried real player,
mozilla and kongi can't find it, firefox does. yea, i know, i will play with
links to various directories later, but it was supposed to work without
manual intervantion. later i will even play with src rpms, if i have the
time. That's in 10.00-OSS-stable, upgraded to the latest updates.
had much better luck with 9.3 in multimedia.
i don't think i am the exception.
i just wish someone puts together a multimedia howto/what-to for x86-64.
in 10.0 and/or 10.1
