Subject: VLC plugin should claim support for audio/x-m4a
Date: Sat, 12 Jul 2008 08:01:02 +0200
Package: mozilla-plugin-vlc
Version: 0.8.6.e-2

The VLC mozilla plugin is able to play files using the mime type
"audio/x-m4a", but because the plugin do not claim support for it, the
file isn't played.  A test page demonstrating this is
<URL:http://loekebergskole.no/podpress/category/podcaster/comenius/norsong/>.

To test, visit the page using iceweasel, press the 'Play now' option
after the text for "Lille Petter Edderkopp".

Please list the "audio/x-m4a" mime type as one supported by vlc.

Happy hacking,

tags 490401 + patch
thanks

This patch get the test page working.  It adds audio/x-m4a and
audio/mp4 to the two files vlcplugin.h and npvlc_rc.rc.  I am not sure
only these two files should be updated, but I can confirm that it work
with this patch in place.

The plugin is showing a black square with the text "no video" in the
middle when playing the audio.  I would prefer it to show some control
buttson (like restart and pause), instead of just the black screen,
but suspect that should be the topic for a different bug.

I was unable to find any rules to generate npvlc_rc.rc from the
content available elsewhere.  It surprised me that the source had
duplicated the information. :)
