1) The thing that annoys me most about mplayerplug-in
is that I can't pause the video (or at least not with
noembed=1). I hit the key, it jumps a couple frames
ahead, and keeps on playing. Incredibly irritating.
(In case it matters, I'm currenty using v3.25, with
Firefox 1.5.2, recent CVS mplayer, and GTK-1.2.10)

2) Infinite loop. For some reason, mplayerplug-in
decides it needs to play seeminly all embedded videos
over and over, forever, or until I close the window
(and potentially crash Moz)

3) FLV. I'd like to see support for FLV. It's
(unfortunately) becomming incredibly popular, and
MPlayer can play several of them. I don't have Flash
installed, and I don't want it, but being able to play
some of the videos on youtube, abcnews, etc., would be
quite nice. I realize this may be very difficult, with
most sites calling a flash applet player, which then
calls the video. Still, it would be a great feature,
and maybe you could use some code from one of the GPL'd
flash players to find the actual video.

    1 & 2. Can you try the daily build.

    3. I don't think this is going to happen, since the
    conflicts with flash will be pretty considerable..

    I use a x86_64 linux system, and I can't play flv in my
    browser, because flash plugin isn't available.
    I totally agree with 3)
