Ogg Vorbis playback within Safari via Universal plug-in Web Browsers
There have been several hints here regarding Ogg Vorbis (.ogg) playback in QuickTime and iTunes. This new Universal plug-in also includes playback within Safari.

You will need to restart Safari after the installer runs. If it doesn't work, you can verify the installation under Quicktime's Advanced tab in the System Preferences. Open MIME Settings, and check the Ogg Multimedia Bitstream option under Video. If the Ogg option is not present after the installer runs, a system restart will be required.

Here's a list of Ogg Vorbis test files. Note that Ogg Vorbis playback does not function within the Firefox browser.

Interesting. I've never installed any plug-ins for Ogg Vorbis, yet I had no problem opening and playing those files from within Safari.

I can also play those test files without installing any plugs

Downloaded the plugin, Installed, Restarted. Neither my iMac G5 nor my Macbook will play the ogg files in Safari. I've associated all ogg files with Quicktime, thinking that may have done the trick but nada.

They will play in Quicktime alone, however. *shrug*

and I am unanimous in that.

Did you verify your MIME settings?
