Hmm - I use FC3, but I compiled the MPlayer plugin for FireFox (and MPlayer itself) from scratch. The error message you get seems to indicate that either MPlayer itself, or the plugin file (maybe?) are missing.

Generally, I've found that sometimes stuff a distro provides "stock" are not correctly (or completely) configured to suit my needs. Try seeing if you can compile the plugin yourself.
