[SOLVED] Problem playing jw player embedded video

Unread post by mozart78 » 2015-03-23, 19:22

Hello,

I have a problem playing some video on a site that uses jw player with Linux version of PM. I can't play any video on this specific site at all. The site is in bulgarian so I'm posting a direct link to a random video:

http://gospodari.com/%D0%B1%D0%BE%D0%B9 ... 59489.html

If you have adobe flash enabled the video window is missing when you try to play it. If you have flash player disabled, the file download dialog appears, when you try to play the video. I tried it on Arch Linux and Mint. If using pepper flash wrapper freshplayer, the video is missing. If the official flash plugin is used, the file download dialog appears. On the other hand the video plays fine on Opera, Firefox and Chrome but I'd really like to stay away from them.

On Windows XP it runs only with Chrome... On Windows 7 and 8 there isn't problems.

No, I can't do forum support and release engineering for 2 products at the same time, sorry.

Try changing media.gstreamer.enabled to true in about:config

That JWPlayer when I load it is a JWPlayer HTML5 version .. NOT the old flash version.. So I don't think flash has anything to do with this.

Yes, it works with media.gstreamer.enabled. Thank you Trava Image

On XP however ther isn't such a string. Do I have to post whole topic again in XP category? I have created the string but with no success.

Great, you're welcome! If you would post again in the XP section that would probably be best, and then I will mark it as solved here in the Linux board.
