You know, Ric, you kept talking about it, and 
mplayer/mplayerplug-in kept flaking out on me - it would work for 
a good while, and then, it would just quit - so I tried your 
suggested extension - it does seem to work well. No long delay on 
the CNN site, which has become my metric - that seems to be one 
of the harder ones - 

I have a question tho - when I click on a CNN video link, I now 
get three windows popping up in order to get the video - there's 
the video play window, there's the second video play window that 
appears when you click on the arrow, and there's an error 
message "Couldn't resolve name for AF_INET6:" followed by a URL - 
I tried removing mplayerplug-in but that just leads me back to 
the old "Can't detect Windows Media Player present error dialog" 
so I reinstalled mplayerplug-in. I can live with the two popup 
windows to get snappy video playback, but are you also getting 
that mysterious message about AF_INET6?
