If there is an swf embedded in a page that should be
played with the flash firefox plugin, and that flash
movie has query string args like

http://www.example.com/movie.swf?arg1=urlencode_param&arg2=urlencode_param

mplayer plug-in will not recognize it as flash and
attempt to handle it, which means you can't see the
flash movie.

I don't have time to sift the source to write a patch.
Please fix it soon as I have to uninstall mplayer
plug-in to be able to watch some flash movies in firefox.

Thanks!

    Can you give an example site the exhibits this behavior?
    Also it sounds to me like the data from the webserver is
    coded with the wrong mime type as that is the only way
    mplayerplug-in will be loaded.
