Can't Play BBC News Videos In Firefox


Hi everyone,

I'm running SUsE 10.0 and have all the multimedia codecs installed; when I go to the BBC news website and click on a video, the Mplayer plugin starts, and then I get the message 'Mplayer:connection refused'.

When my mate does this in SUsE 9.3 Realplayer opens and plays the video; I guess I somehow have to tell Realplayer toopen this type of file (instead of Mplayer), but I'm pretty new to Linux and not sure hat to do.

I would very much appreciate any help or advice;

Thanks in advance...
