I've been having trouble getting the mplayer plugin to
play videos from the comedy central website lately.
First, here's my setup:

FC5 with:
firefox 1.5.0.6
mplayer-1.0-0.45.pre8
mplayerplug-in-3.25-1
essential-20060611 codecs

Now, here's the URL of a video I am having trouble with:

http://www.comedycentral.com/sitewide/media_player/play.jhtml?itemId=72759

The plugin window keeps looping the following messages:

Connecting to server <servername>
Buffering http://<url>
Playing mms://<url>

The video will not play. However, I can right-click
and do a "get URL" from the plugin to obtain:

mms://a1768.v9950c.c9950.g.vm.akamaistream.net/7/1768/9950/v001/comedystor.download.akamai.com/9951/_!/com/colbert/2101_seat.wmv?auth=caEdCbtdFcHa4b6cYcmcAcjc6cyaDaVcbcf-be29zQ-dHa-DDNzoE&aifp=mtvn_02

I can run mplayer directly from the command line using
this URL (single quoted) and it works just fine.

Any ideas why this doesn't work with the mplayer
plugin? Is there a way I can get additional debug
information?
