Re: [Totem] Browser plugin gstreamer

Dear All,

I cannot thank you enough for all your mails.  But my wife and daughter are mad about Windows and I am mad about Linux, with PC to share.  I had Ubuntu, which was gradually switched to Gnome with the help of you pepole.  Unfortunately enough, it was corrupted through repeated power cuts we usually get here (Iran), thanks to our  clever president and his geneous advisers!

Therefore, I no longer can work with Gnome OS.  Therefore I am trying to locate one of my ex students who is a Linux fan.

I just wrote these lines to thank you for now until I can find the ex student of mine.

Thank you so very much again.

Best Regards

That's the point of being simple.

Doesn't WMP use application/x-oleobject ?

According to the spec setting the URI in the data field is all that
should really be required:

All the other plugins are just complicating things.

I don't know what was the intention of Mark. But if Totem only
requires GTK+ and GStreamer probably is good enough.

Best regards.
