Novell SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop 10
When visiting sites that utilize the MPlayer plug-in for Firefox, sound plays but there is no picture or visual images being displayed.
A possible resolution is to alter the video output configuration option.
- Open /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf
- Locate the line for the video output (begins with "vo=").
- Remove the XVideo option ("xv").
- Save the file
- Restart Firefox and try the site again.
vo=xv,x11would be altered to read :
vo=x11Upon restarting Firefox, the MPlayer plug-ins will attempt to use the x11 drivers for video output instead of the XVideo driver.
