Hi,

   I have complied and installed the latest mplayer plugin 3.55 and the latest mplayer v1.0rc2. Both of them work fine on www.quicktime.com/trailers. My PC is Ubuntu7.0.4 with firefox2.0.0.16. However I have two questions on mplayer plugin regarding youtube support.
   (1) As you know, videos from m.youtube.com are based on rtsp protocol. However the mplayer plugin I installed cannot support rtsp playback from website. I can only enable rtsp playback using mplayer after following instructions from document "RTSP issues in firefox". Can mplayer plugin also support rtsp playback online? How to do if it can?
   (2) Videos from www.youtbue.com can be played correctly using plugins from flash player 9. However mplayer can also playback local flv files correctly. So can mplayer plugin support flv playback from website www.youtbue.com similar to flash player? How to do if it can?

Thanks,
Laifa
