RFC 3534  specifies application/ogg for Ogg Stream. A manual install of the VLC Media Player Mozilla Plugin, the Mplayer Mozilla Plugin etc. is cumbersome.  http://plugindoc.mozdev.org/winmime.html  http://xiph.org/ogg/doc/rfc3534.txt Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Create a (X)HTML site with an <object /> of type "application/ogg" 2. Open it in vanilla Firefox. 3. Nothing happens. Actual Results: Nothing. Expected Results: Prompt for plugin installation, e.g. VLC Media Player Mozilla plugin. Works on Ubuntu thanks to Ubofox's Apt-enabled plugin finder wizard.
This might be a dup of bug 417467, "No 'Install Missing Plugins...' message when Flash is included by <object>-Tag only".
(In reply to comment #1) > This might be a dup of bug 417467, "No 'Install Missing Plugins...' message > when Flash is included by <object>-Tag only". > It isn't. Although FF3 doesn't handle plugins properly, FF2 also doesn't work on application/ogg while it /does/ recognize application/x-ogg. this clearly is a separate issue - IMHO subsequent FF2 releases should recognize application/ogg.
This list of MIME types is specified by each plugin, not by Firefox. If you go to about:plugins you can see which plugin has claimed support for application/x-ogg and failed to claim support for application/ogg.
I seem to have failed to explain this properly: This bug occures when *NO* plugin is installed (vanilla Firefox); the plugin finder component is unable to suggest a plugin for application/ogg. If I install a plugin - be it VLC, Totem, Mplayer etc. - the plugin usually recognizes application/ogg and plays audio or video withut issues.
You get a "missing plugin" message with "application/x-ogg" but not with "application/ogg"?
Sorry, I relied on third party information which was false. I checked it myself with vanilla FF 18.104.22.168 in safe mode - I get a "missing plugin" message with application/ogg and application/x-ogg but Firefox is unable to suggest a plugin. The error still is "Firefox plugin finder suggests no plugin for application/ogg". Disclaimer: I work on a free video CMS in my spare time which makes extensive use of application/ogg.
view test case for application/ogg plugin at <http://studikz.org/testcase.xhtml>. steps: 1. open test case. 2. see no video. 3. PANIC !!1 contrast this experience to ubufox, where it is like: 1. open test case. 2. see no video, but message that plugin can be installed. 3. install plugin. 4. ??? 5. PROFIT !!!

Created attachment 320439 [details] Ogg Theora <object> test case finally found out how to add attachments to bugs. enjoy your test case.
Apparently, Annodex has an Ogg Vorbis + Theora + Speex Plugin extension, but it works only for application/liboggplay <http://annodex.net/software/plugin/index.html>. The following steps need to be taken now: 1. Modify the extension to work with application/ogg. 2. Update the extension for FF 3 (it still uses install.js) 3. Integrate that stuff into plugin finder.
Confirmed. I uninstalled VLC, restarted the PC, opened a blank Fx3 profile and visited the testcase url. After clicking the "Install Missing Plugin" button, Fx3 founds no plugins. Anyway I think that this bug: 1) has a Normal, not an Enhancement severity 2) shouldn't have polish and useless-UI Keywords 3) should be moved to addons.mozilla.org - Plugins, because this is not a Fx bug, but simply VLC plugin is not recommended by Mozilla Can anyone confirm this bug and do the above changes?
