I'm trying to play some streaming video ("Doppler radar" at

on my Kutuntu 8.10 system.
MPlayer-plug-in-3.50, and Shockwave-Flash-10.0r15, on RPM-based
kernel-184.108.40.206 Mandriva distribution.
I have .wmv files associated with Kaffeine via my SM preferences, and
they open right up in my browser.
When I try to play the weather video above, I get a "missing plugin"
message from SM.
I suppose I need to define another filetype in my preference, but
don't know what it is; or perhaps Kaffeine doesn't handle streaming
video, or needs some plugin I don't know about.
Can someone suggest a good way to view the video via SM?
(Likely an elementary question - I'm relatively new at Linux....)
2/ Confirm your system's Kaffeine truly-can play a local WMV-file OK.
3/ Check that you are using a recent edition of Flash
having regard-to the libcurl-versions installed on your Ubuntu-8.10
(http://www.wfsb.com/videofaq/index.html). Hope that helps.
Thanks much for the help, will give it a shot. Regards, RL
