Thanks for the tip.
Now for everyone's information, I removed nspluginwrapper from my
installed base of RPMs, using my particular package manager, which
happens to be Smart. Then I reloaded Firefox and went back to that page
I built, with the embedded video from Fox News Channel. And this time,
Chris, may I suggest that the problem is a bit wider than the 64-bit
version. The 32-bit version does the same. My plugins were all using
"nswrapper-32-32." Now, without nspluginwrapper, they're all back to
their native .so files.
So: /all/ version of nspluginwrapper cause problems for videos called
with certain scripts. You can't even get the embedding code with
nspluginwrapper in place.
