mplayerplug-in is not working with mozilla. When I am trying to play an
embedded video from a site, I just see "mplayer plug-in - Loading movie"
with a white blank page, but nothing comes up. I am trying tp play the
animatrix trailer preview from "http://www.intothematrix.com/" .
But it plays the videos(Quicktime, AVI, MPEG, FLI ) fine from the site
I have downloaded the animatrix video "animatrixmedfinal_dl.mov" , and
mplayer plays it fine.
When I tried to play the embedded animatrix video from command line with "mplayer http_proxy://server:port//http://progressive1.stream.real.aol.com/wb/gl/wbonline/progressive/thematrix/us/med/ani_tr_4_720_dl.mov" , it plays just fine without any problem.
I am running RedHat Linux 8.0 with kernel version 2.4.18-27.8.0 .

Please help me with this. Where am I doing wrong? What measures should I
take in order to play quicktime movies in my mozilla browser?
