Mplayerplug-in fixed

January 24, 2010 — BarryK
As reported recently, The Mplayer browser plugin used in Quirky 005 crashes with some .ram files. After discussion with the developer Kevin, we determined that it is due to the .ram file being a single line of text without a trailing carriage-return character. But kevin pointed out that his code does test for that condition.

Rather than hand it over to Kevin to fix, I decided to tackle it. I found the appropriate file, and where it was crashing. I fixed it.

I have posted the fix to the Mplayerplug-in maillist, also have uploaded the patched source here:

"Barry, Did you ever try the patch I made to the mplayerplug-in cvs tree? I wanted to be sure that my patch, which was based on yours, actually fixed it.
