It worked, but, when loading the flv file from the browser it tells me
if I want to open it with the default player associated with flv
extensions, which is ' Parole Media Player ' (this is fedora XFCE
btw), which in turn tells me it lacks the plugins/codecs to open that
file. Catch 22.


Maybe I'll have to fiddle with the browser's mime-types to tell the
browser to play the flv file internally.... now if I could remember
how.... last time I fiddled with mime types I was using Netscape
Communicator 4.x I think. ;)
