Description

12 years ago
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060624 Firefox/1.5.0.4
Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; de; rv:1.8.0.4) Gecko/20060624 Firefox/1.5.0.4

That happens with the latest mplayerplug-in from cvs, firefox-1.5.0.5, mozilla-1.7.13. xv is the xvideo extension of the Xorg server. It works flawlessly when using x11 for video playback. It also seems to depend on the bitrate in that case: using the low bandwidth version works more often than it does not.

firefox-2.0b1 and the latest nightly release failed here, too. Others (mplayerplug-in developer) have replicated that problem.

Can you point out more precisely why this is related to firefox?

I'm not sure whether that is related to firefox/gecko. I have filed a bug with mplayerplug-in, too.
Reporter, do you still see this problem with the latest Firefox 2? If not, can you please close this bug as WORKSFORME. Thanks!

Please file a new bug if you can reproduce it in Firefox 3.0.1 or newer.
