    Install MPlayer and use the MPlayer plugin for mozilla. MPlayer is available from http://www.mplayerhq.hu/ and the plugin from http://sourceforge.net/projects/mplayerplug-in/.

    I'm not entirely sure what HTML to write. Either, you just insert an IFRAME that links directly to the movie file, or you use the EMBED construct, I would guess. I basically just know that this plugin exists, I haven't experimented with it.
    What exactly does IE have with this to do? I though these were Linux-based clients?

    are you just looking to serve up movies through the web browser? If so then just put the movie files in a directory accessible by the user running apache (usually apache or "nobody"). /var/www is where I keep my html and other misc. stuff. If you put it in there, then just write the html like you normally would in windows it should work.

    This is kinda off topic but does anyone know what I need to do with the Skin I downloaded for Mplayer? I downloded the skin 'Blue' from the site and moved this directory to /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin but I get an error saying that it needs file /usr/local/share/mplayer/Skin/default/skin whenever I run gmplayer.

    I think you need the default skin as well for some reason.
