I thought that only MPlayerplug-in and not MPlayer alone could play streaming media? My MPlayer won't MPlayerplug-in can play them sometimes, but it's not that often, most of the time it never does play anything ..

no difference, it's just how mplayerplug-in handles the data it passes to mplayer. mp[layer does the real work. maybe you're just passing it a playlist without using the -playlist option.
