mplayer auto start


When I click on a movie file online how can I get mplayer to start automatically, like the other evil (m$) player does.

Ok I got everything installed, mplayer plugin for mozilla too. So far it has only worked on one link, other times it just sits there saying "loading movie" and then does nothing. What I would really like it to do is when I click on a link for it to auto start like M$ media player. Can this be done and if so how.

Thanks
