Media plugins just not working!!!! Help please.

Ok so I know this all has been asked and answerd before but I can not seem to resolve my issue here. I like to go to the net ofcource and view streaming media, files that are in real or windows format and I just cant get it to work. I browse the net with:
Mozilla 1.6
Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.6) Gecko/20040324
I have gxine, mplayer (totally not wotking for me) and real player installed.
When I go to look at my mozilla plugin under help I see:

Try this site for help. The plugin from there does pretty much all you need.
Can you say what errors you are getting with mplayer?
