Developing firefox plugin. Knowing when to use.

I always ask this question when switching to a new platform/interface.

I'm in the process of developing a simple firefox plugin that allows users to view .mkv video on the browser.

Just how someone would develop a plugin for .mp4 video support.

My question is this: How will firefox know to use my plugin when it is trying to stream .mkv video?

As far as I'm concerned all plugins need to be running and firefox needs to cycle thorough them, testing each one to see if it can play the video.

This is slightly confusing. I already know how to get plugins to install, and the programming part where I incorporate support for a given file type is fairly easy.

But, how will firefox know when to use my plugin?

Thanks,

Yes, that should work with the object and embed tag.

It won't work if files are send with an audio or video tag, because those tags only support specific MIME types in Firefox.

If servers sends such a .mkv file with a specific MIME type then you need to make sure that your plugin supports that MIME type.
You can see on the about:plugins page which MIME types are supported by a plugin.

I see. So if I associate my plugin with say: .mkv, mkv, or video/x-matroska, etc, firefox will pull my plugin down for use when it meets such a stream?

That's ok. I don't plan on using HTML5 or the object tag because I use a specific web player (flowplayer).

Thanks, though.
