We use a squid proxy. I edited the source code to
append the http_proxy:// option to the mplayer args.
This works fine for the Quicktime movies page but I
have yet to get any windows media type movies to play
at all. I assume this is because things like ASX files
tend to point to other files which mplayer doesnt use
the proxy command line arg for. But I may be wrong.

Either way, a way to use mozilla's proxy settings might
be nice.

    I think this should be added as an option to
    mplayerplug-in.conf, but you can add it anyway to you
    ~/.mplayer/mplayer.conf which will hold some default-settings!

    With asx-files:

    It is not that mplayer would ignore them, I think it is just
    not possible to handle a protocol like mms:// over squid ...

    But perhaps you could use some sock-server/client or just
    forward/open the appropriate ports ?

    all streams but mms are now handled through mozilla. So if
    mozilla can get the media, the plugin can get it.
