new kaffeine plugin for firefox's

Greetings all;

I can see that its installed and should be calling kaffeine to service a 
quite wide range of video formats.

Unfortunately, while kaffeine is installed and runs for other digital 
than tv broadcast, neither firefox is actually calling it.  So while I 
can see videos, some on cnn, and some on nbc news in firefox's postcard 
sized video, nothing that I have been able to add, will call up kaffeine 
to play a youtube video.  If I launch a copy and have it running, it 
seems to me that firefox should pass the data stream to the running copy 
of kaffeine.

But its not happening, no reaction from kaffeine can be obtained from 
either version of firefox.

So I installed the gxine launcher plugin. Looks like an identical list of 
acceptable video formats to that of kaffeine.

Is there an about:config option to be set so this works?  What else do I 
need to check?


Cheers, Gene Heskett
