Summary0004530: Movie player doesn't load on Unix system
DescriptionMedia files such as mp3, mpeg, mp4 won't display on Unix based system when viewing contents.

After some debugging and tracing, it suggests that the get.php redirects the Movie Player(or totem) on unix's firefox to our login.php. This is most likely due to the fact that the plugin is trying to call get.php but don't have the cookie with it.

Is this the nature of plugins? Should plugin carry cookies with them? Or should we authenticate the access via a token or some sort to fix this problem?

When we wrap mp4 files around the [media][/media] tag, the "application/x-shockwave-flash" is being added to the <object> type attribute. Making the FF on ubuntu to attempt loading the mp4 inside flash which causes failure. I took the type="application/x-shockwave-flash" out from the database and the movie plays.

Note: I tried taking the type attribute out from "Plain text" but it will add itself back as as soon as I clicked on "HTML"

TinyMCE wraps media files with default type="application/x-shockwave-flash"?
