No sound in mplayer or mplayer firefox plugin

OK, let's say I wanted to go here:
and watch a trailer for a movie.
I can't get sound, and when I copy the URL into the terminal, this some of the output I get:

Opening audio decoder: [qtaudio] QuickTime Audio Decoder
Win32 LoadLibrary failed to load: qtmlClient.dll, /usr/lib/codecs/qtmlClient.dll, /usr/lib/win32/qtmlClient.dll, /usr/local/lib/win32/qtmlClient.dll
failed loading dll
ADecoder preinit failed
ADecoder init failed
Cannot find codec for audio format 0x324D4451.
Read DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html!
vo: X11 running at 1280x1024 with depth 24 and 32 bpp (":0.0" => local display)
Xv: could not grab port 61
Opening video decoder: [ffmpeg] FFmpeg's libavcodec codec family
Selected video codec: [ffsvq3] vfm:ffmpeg (FFmpeg Sorenson Video v3 (SVQ3))
Audio: no sound

I'm assuming I need to get a quick time audio codec (or .dll?), but where do I get it and where do i put it?

just get the one called "all"
and from the looks of your output unpack it into /usr/lib/codecs

if there is no directory by that name do as root (change the name of (and path to) the "all" file as necessary)
install -d -m755 /usr/lib/codecs &&
tar xjfv ./all-20041107.tar.bz2 \
    -C /usr/lib/codecs --strip-path=1 &&
chown -R root:root /usr/lib/codecs
