mplyayer plug-in on mozilla can't play streaming radio


I am trying to play some streaming radio with mplayer-plug-in on mozilla, but it doesn't work.
the odd thing is that I can play SOME streaming radio with mplayer plug-in but not the others.

I tried to play this streaming radio from command line:
$ mplayer http://www.dr.dk/netradio/boogie20.asx

Playing http://www.dr.dk/netradio/boogie20.asx.

What can this be? I can play this streaming radio on my windows with media player...
I cannot play some streaming video, either. (but again, I can play SOME streaming videos...)
I have installed mplayer-codecs-essential and mplayer-codecs-win32.

Can anybody help me out?

I just ried out your sites and they all fail in MPlayer current, so I don't know what the problem is. Xine works fine on the sites you listed, so if you don't have it installed try it out.

I had already installed pug-in for mozilla and it works for many streaming radio.... have also
installed codecs-essential and codecs-win32. it still doesn't work for some streaming radio.

anyway, I have just installed xine and it works fine.
I don't want to install plug-in for xine, though... seems like it can crush
mozilla quite often.

for the time being I will just use mplayer-plug-in and xine for internet radio.
thanks for help.

asx files are playlists, not media themselves. you can either use:
which i found from catting the asx file, or
Code:
 mplayer -playlist http://www.dr.dk/netradio/boogie20.asx
to interpret it correctly

thanks for your help. it helped to use -playlist.

btw, I hv actually found a solution to play some video:

http://www.mplayerhq.hu/DOCS/HTML/en/faq.html#id2895374

I should have mentioned that I was using FC2, but I didn't know
that it was distro specific problem.

now I can play wmv videos...
