Embedded video constant freeze and locks up

I been having problems trying to watch the tv trasmission from that site wwi TV. Everything else like youtube etc works no problem.

When I use Firefox to watch wwi TV it loads fine, then it plays for about a minute or so and goes mute, after a few seconds the image goes too, I'm not sure what plugin firefox is using because it doesn't show. Using Opera Browser it plays using the MPLAYER plugin, as I can see the volume controls and a little splash screen MPLAYER on the start, but the sound and image quality are terrible, no possible to watch and very annoying to listen to that robotic voice.

I have been trying for a while to get this working, I installed xine-plugin package and firefox would not open the wwi TV at all and opera showed good image and sound but locked up after a few minutes, and no full screen availible. So I removed the xine-plugin and installed the M-player plugin and the result is what I described in the second paragraph above.

Any ideas how to get this fixed?
