MPlayer plugin - no video - only sound

I updated my MPlayer plugin a while ago. Today when I went to this link: All I got was sound but no video and it was full screen. I don't remember what I had to do to get the video to stop but that crashed my browser.

How do I fix this?

My distro is SuSE 10.0 and the plugin is mplayerplug-in version 3.50 and my browser is SeaMonkey 1.1.9

Video Codexes.

Did you download and install all of the video codexes you need? Have never used SUSE so not sure what packages you would need.

I'm pretty sure that I have all codecs.
Since my system is now old (version 10.0 SuSE is up to 11.0 now) I don't think that I could get any packages anymore.

When I got my system up and running I did install the package.

A person on the MPlayer plugin forums on sourceforge helped me to figure out my problem. The video is in Flash 10 and my system only has Flash 9. I can't update that now because my system is considered too old and Flash 10 does not support older Linux systems.
