Subject: Re: [ubuntu-uk] Firefox and BBC video (sigh)


Add the medibuntu repo as per these instructions - this is so you can
install the necessary codecs.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get remove totem-mozilla
sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer w32codecs

You should then find that opening firefox and going to any of the bbc
realplayer pages you can click "play in realplayer" and it should work
in the browser.

I note that previous to this I was using the real.com binary, and 
before following the above instructions I systematically found and 
deleted anything that Real installed (quite a lot of effort for a 
couch gui user like me)  just to keep things 'clean'. I am not sure if 
that was necessary or not.

FWIW - I am using firefox, kubuntu 7.04
