Browser multimedia test pages for Debian Edu

To check if multimedia work properly in the browser in Debian Edu, test pages are needed. This wiki page is the place to collect such test pages. Prefer direct links to a page with multimedia content over links to the top level on a site with several different multimedia pages.

It is also useful to consider the plugin reliability.

Plugins to test

There are several plugin packages available in Debian. Here are the ones we know about:

Usage graph

Requirement and conclusion

We need an embedded plugin with control buttions that is able to stream media files (ie not download first), which support as many of the video test sites we have been asked to get working.

It is an advange if the plugin do not take much space on the CD and DVD, ie avoid pulling in many new dependencies.

At the moment (Lenny 2008-11-23), the best option seem to be mozilla-mplayer. It support all but one video site, got embedded playing, control buttons and streaming. None of the other plugins fit the requirement that well.

Non-flash based

The testing is done using iceweasel and epiphany-browser (becuase 2008-07-20 iceweasel refuses to start due to 491536).

This is the script used to generate the list of MIME types.

To use it, first install gcc and apt-file, run apt-file update and finally all packages providing plugins using

apt-get install apt-file gcc
apt-file update
apt-get install $(apt-file search /usr/lib/mozilla/plugins|cut -d: -f1|sort -u)

Then you run this script to extract the MIME support for each plugin.

#!/bin/sh
#
# List the supported MIME types of the available
# mozilla/firefox/iceweasel plugins.
