Plugin Problems...please help

Get this message when trying to open any type of mpeg apps:

Plugin: No appropriate application for type video/mpeg found

I went to "about : plugins" and everything is installed and enabled. I checked the previous threads on this topic and downloaded a few other java/flash plugins...but those seemed to give me the same errors. Another thing, my sister goes to this to play the games on there.....I don't know exactly what is at fault here...but whenever I play the'll load the applet and the sounds just fine...but it lags like crazy....the frames start shifting....and everything gets distorted.. This does not happen in windows so I was wondering if anyone can assist me with these problems. Thanks.


P.S - BTW I use Mozilla and my distro is RH 9.0

Please do not post the same thread in more than one forum. Picking the most relevant forum and posting it once there makes it easier for other members to help you and keeps the discussion all in one place.

Sorry about that...I figured this would be a better place to post after I posted in the Software section. If you want to delete this thread, I don't mind....I'll persist in the Software section.
