mplayer streams audio but not video

I love Fedora! I'm running FC1, and -- thanks to a lot of great advice from this very forum -- I've got everything I ever wanted and more to work, except for two things:

1) Mplayer streams audio but not video through Mozilla. I added all the MIME types to the helper apps, and still I just get audio. Any ideas? It's puzzling.

2) I installed JRE, made the link to the mozilla/plugins folder, and enabled Java, but it still doesn't work. What's up with that? I'm perplexed.

Thanks in advance for your help.

OK, I figured out the mplayer problem and the Java problem, but I still can't get Java to work. Here's why:

The link in the mozilla/plugins folder is broken. I've remade the link about five times and it's always broken. How do you fix a broken link, and why might this be happening? Do certain directories not like to be linked to each other? Would moving java to /usr/share solve this?

OK, all fixed, and I learned something -- you link from the empty location to the file, not the other way around. That's a good thing to know.
