Well I have some answers for you.
The first site works fine with the version in CVS.
The second site, mplayerplug-in does not appear to be called, so it looks like
a flash issue.
The third site looks to be a problem with mplayer and the media type. I have
seen this same issue with 9news.com and it seems that mplayer can't handle
it. The good news is that if you choose realmedia and have mplayerplug-in and
mplayer setup for realmedia the media works fine.
Thanks for the kind words about mplayerplug-in.
