Mplayer Mozilla Plugin not playing movies


I just got MPlayer and the pluging for mozilla installed, but it will not load movies when I try. For example the matrix reloaded trailer at apple.com will not load, the white box just sits there saying "MPlayer plugin - loading movie" But it never actually loads and plays.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

Yeah I ran into this as well. What I did was run my browser from a shell, go to apple.com and load a movie, and then check the output of the mplayer plugin in the shell. In my case, it turned out that it was looking for some fonts that were not there. Once I installed the fonts in the correct directory everything worked fine.

I forget exactly but the output from the plugin should tell you where you need to put the fonts. They can be downloaded from mplayers site.
