I'm ready to install pidgin + pidgin-embeddedvideo. Now what ?
I have just tried the latest Openbox on LiveUSB and it does play an embedded video.
So it is most likely my install & remaster that is at fault.
What happens is this .....
with the packages installed and the plugin enabled .... when someone sends you a link to a video you can watch the video in the Pidgin IM window, instead of having to launch a browser to view the video.
If you wish to try it, we can do an IM session and send video links to see if they will play in the Pidgin window.
