Embedded media in browser (Firefox)

It seems that I have the gxine and gmplayer plugins mostly set up, as they will pop up to open videos (direct link, and some embedded). I can't however, play embedded sound files, like a file that was supposed to play when you visit a page. Also, with embedded flash files, I get video but no sound. Anyone know how to fix this?

I'm using firefox 1.0 on slackware 10.0

P.S. Is there a way to make embedded videos actually play in the browser, instead of popping up a new gxine player?

Hmm that seemed to work for most things thanks!
Still can't hear sound with flash files though.
