Firefox Will Not Play Yahoo Video


This is just an example.

http://www.yahoo.com/s/382598

I click on the link and the window opens and seems to be loading the video. But nothing happens. No messages. Anyone else having the same problem? I am using Suse 10.1 anf Firefox 1.5

Can someone point me to a possible plugin? I look at the ones at the Mozilla site but nothings seems to match.

Thank you

I looked on their site. https://addons.mozilla.org/firefox/plugins/

It says its only available for Windows. Unless the plugin is at a different site

You need mplayer, mplayerplug-in, and the essential codecs from the mplayer site.
