The web browser I use is Firefox (currently in version 8 in Oneiric).
According the Compatibility Check information the Moonlight extension is not compatible with FF8. Anyway, I enabled this extension using the AddOn Compatibility Reporter. And, actually, I cannot watch Silverlight streams in an acceptable way: the video gets stuck, the HD keeps buffering (I guess), so I have to close the window.
Does anybody know if there is a way to fix this or a suitable alternative?
I'm looking for something which is fully supported and mantained.
To those that wish to install Moonlight on any Firefox version greater than v4 and like me could not get the Official Firefox Compatibility checker to allow installation...then you can do the following:
Finally - when Firefox version changes, Firefox will automatically disable the add-on. Use the official Compatibility Reporter to re-enable this modified add-on
A few possible reasons why you have playback issues:
If you have trouble with a "play" button on-screen during playback and/or "autoplay" in general; goto about:config and set "media.autoplay.enabled" to "false".
Final note - from wikipedia, moonlight development has stopped. The developers have been laid off from Novell and the company that has taken over has stopped (for some unknown reason) the nightly builds. Looks like this technology is in dire straights :(
