competition videos not palying

Hi,
I m using a Linux system (Open SUSE to be precise) and Firefox as my browser. I am not able to view the videos posted in the archives although the ecritiques and the other videos play via mplayer.... i do have the latest version of the quicktime plugin installed and DivX is disabled. This problem does not occur when i m using a windows system. Is there any setting i m missing in SUSE or my firefox???
I would be nice to be able to view all the videos ....... I need help  sad
Thanks

Re: competition videos not palying

What version of Firefox do you use? We have an HTML5 player which should work with Firefox 3.6+.

Re: competition videos not palying

Have you tried disabling every add-on? Maybe there's one messing up the playback.

Re: competition videos not palying

If you try viewing the video directly, does it work? http://www.11secondclub.com/movies/54/KCRb4T.ogv

Re: competition videos not palying

Hi smile
Thanks for replying smile
Uncle11, i tried disabling all the plugins for playback and added them step by step according to the videos i was not able to watch from youtube, vimeo, etc.  Now the videos on other sites are playing fine although the DivX and RealPlayer9 plugin is disabled. But...... still the videos in the 11secondclub archives are not playing sad

Bog, I downloaded the video with the link u sent me and it plays fine using a player called Xine. U think its the .ogv format which is creating the problem ??? is there a plugin that i can download for that ???

Re: competition videos not palying

Firefox should support the .ogv format natively (without any plugins).  It's possible the version you have excludes that support?  Maybe you could try the Firefox 4 betas?

Re: competition videos not palying

I know this post is old. But I am suffering the same as above. Direct video plays fine, but struggling to play in the browser. Black screen but can hear the audio. I am using Chrome. Tried a google search to no avail. Any suggestions please?

Thanks

Re: competition videos not palying

Yeah, videos tend to only show a black screen when I hit play, I only hear the audio. So I need to watch it on Safari or Opera to see it work.
