[webkit-dev] NetscapeMoviePlugin Sample Broken?

Hi Wayne,

We did recently fix an issue with the NetscapeMoviePlugin sample  
crashing in Firefox, but unfortunately the updated sample code has  
not yet been released.

The example plugin should load in Safari, though.  Can you verify  
that it has been built and installed correctly?  You can look at the  
list of installed plugins by choosing "Installed Plug-Ins" from  
Safari's "Help" menu.

You might also want to temporarily move aside your other installed  
plugins, in case one of them (QuickTime?) is registered for the same  
content type as NetscapeMoviePlugin.

Is anything logged to the console (/Applications/Utilities/ 
Console.app) when the test page is loaded?

If you're stuck after checking these things you can and should file a  
bug at: http://bugzilla.opendarwin.org/
