plugin never plays the movie

  • I've been using MPlayer-1.0 for months, without a problem.  I was using the mplayer-plugin, version 0.8 for a while, also without a problem.  I recently upgraded to 1.0pre2 and now the movie never plays.  I either get a "No Stream" error, or i see "Playing" in the box, with the URL after it, and nothing ever plays. 

    I'm not behind any firewalls or proxy servers.  In fact, I can manually run 'mplayer <URL>' and it streams the same movie just fine.

    Anyone have any ideas what is going on?
