I have a number of problems revolving around flash player. Hope I can
get some help.
The good news first: I have flash player 10 installed in Firefox 3
playing analog sound out of my sound card. Other good news, I got
Mythflix working. Just going down the list. Good day to do that as I
can't go outside because of all the smoke in the air from the 800
brushfires we have around here.
I cannot get flash to play in "Information Center" -> "WWW" web pages
within Myth. I can get the web page I want but when I click on what
would start the flash video in Firefox, I get a message about needing to
install the latest version of flashplayer. If I click on that, the
screen fills up with what I would guess is the downloaded binary (not
I have found postings that say I need to turn on video playback by doing
this "Settings" -> "Mythweb" -> "Video Playback" After looking all over
the myth interface and finding nothing, I found such a menu thread on
the mythweb interface (accessed from a remote computer) so I don't think
that is the same www interface I am interested in.
I don't use analog outputs from myth. I use spdif. Nothing comes out
the spdif port from Firefox. There must be some way to do this but I
can't find it. I see some posts that date back to 2006 but am reluctant
to chase them as that has not proved fruitful in the past. As a work
around I can use an external switch to bypass my external spdif decoder,
but that isn't very convent.
I cannot get full screen with flash on Firefox. I think this is an
Adobe bug. On my prototype, I back loaded Flash player 9 but it had a
new problem. Before I go through all that again just to remember why it
didn't work, anyone know the story here?
