media palyer & firefox

HI all,
Using slack 10.1, but having trouble viewing mpeg files in firefox. Installed mplayer plugin, but still no good. aboutlugins doesn't show the plugin either. Used packages from to download
Kernel is 2.4.29
example link www dot coastalwatchdot com dot au/camera/cameras_large.aspx?cam=1300&mode=windows&state=QLD[/url]

works ok for flash

Also, if I try to use the 'missing plugins' or the 'install missing plugins' it doesn't work
