    this is a minor gripe of mine too, the gxine plugin is useless and for some reason i prefer xine over mplayer , even though i know mplayer is probably the better one.

    I'll try get mplayer and the firefox plugin working, i am so fedup with seeing 'download plugin here' on some sites.

    xine plugin just loads the player but never loads the movie. so i gave up and tried with mplayer. and when i say xine loads the player it loads the external player and the plugin player at the same time but neither load the movie.

    did you have to install mplayer yourself or was it already installed on that distro? i need to stick with slack on my notebook because its a bit old and newer distros seem to work poorly with it. mplayer wasnt already installed i had installed the codecs from mplayers web site before i installed mplayer.
