Description Alex Dusty 2002-05-10 16:02:34 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (compatible; Konqueror/3.0.0-10; Linux)

Description of problem:
The plugin is not started, even if everything seems well configured. I tried to upgrade the plugin to the latest release ( from the macromedia site but that did not solved the problem.
The plugin works great under mozilla and netscape, tough.
That's a blocking issue for me (I develop flash applications), and prefer konqueror as a browser for a number of reasons.
The plugin worked fine with the previous release, under Red Hat 7.2

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. open a web page with a flash applet, as www.macromedia.com
2. the plugin is not started

I get offer a "me too".  I found further that if I directly reference the flash 
file in the Address URL box, it loads and runs.  I just can't get it to work 
when embedded into a webpage.

Comment 2 Rex Dieter 2002-05-13 20:07:41 UTC
I found an example of a flash site not loading (don't laugh):  
This USED to work with kde-2.2.2.  
I'm also getting similar (but not as drastic) failures on some sites with 
embedded java applets.  Sometimes they load, sometimes they don't.   
is a good example, there's supposed to be 2 applets, but I can only get at 
most one of them to work (by reloading).  I've tried both jre1.3.1_02 and 
jre1.4.0 from sun (rpm).

Just snagged kde 3.0.1-1 packages from rawhide. java applets now seem to load 
reliably.  I also found an example of a flash site that actually works:

Comment 4 Carlos Rodrigues 2002-06-22 18:53:07 UTC
The problem is khtml doesn't correctly interpret the <object> tag and thus, 
flash animations which are not inside a <object></object> pair work ok. Like 
the one above.

Comment 5 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-07-01 11:18:41 UTC
Accessing any of those pages with 3.0.2-1 gives me a warning saying no plugin 
for swf found and a large reserved area, so I think the <object> parsing stuff 
is fixed. 

Comment 6 Rex Dieter 2002-07-02 13:53:27 UTC
I can verify that with kdelibs-3.0.2-0.cvs20020625 and 
kdebase-3.0.2-0.cvs20020627 (from rawhide), and the flash5 plugin from 
macromedia, that the flash portions of webpages now actually load and work.  
So when do we get to see 3.0.2-1?  (-:
