#1064 closed enhancement (no change required)

Replicant-ify and nsPlugin-ify MediaPlayer

It would be nice to have MediaPlayer usable by other apps as a View. Both Replicant and nsPlugin (netscape API as used by Opera, but IIRC there is a newer API for Mozilla plugins, should be verified) require moving all the control code from the Window to the base View class as the Window nor the App will be available then.

Haiku revision: hrev42211 still a bug. I have tried but i can't use MediaPlayer by other apps.There was no way to do this . System: Haiku hrev1-alpha3 on VMware workstation 8 on windows 7 32-bit

Well there is a reason the priority is set to low... You can send a patch also ;-)

I was not aware of this ticket before today, but I've had this thought as well, at least from the perspective of making the MediaPlayer internal media playing code available to other apps. I think we will need this to support HTML5 audio and video in WebPositive.

I suppose making it a replicant is the "BeOS" way, but I also thought about just making it a library ( or whatever) which both the MediaPlayer app and WebPositive (and whatever else) can use for playing media. The replicant method is certainly worth exploring, but I personally would not want to be constrained to that.

I'm kind of interested in giving it a go (hence cc'ing myself), adding useful replicant support for it.

I also had the same idea (adding good replicant support and using it for HTML5 audio/video in web+) :p

Is this ticket still valid with HTML5 audio/video now working in Web+?

No. If you want to play media in your app, use the Media Kit. If the Media Kit API is unusable, make it better. I don't see why we would embed MediaPlayer in another app.
