Ironically, I footnote the point made above, by an experience I 
had  just after sending that post. I tried a CNN video at that 
moment, and it completely stalled after opening the player 
window; all the flash stuff appeared, the messages about 
accessing the file appeared, it appeared to connect and the play 
window turned black as if it was going to play - then, 
nothing... When I tried to close the window, Firefox completely 
closed down. I checked my updates moments later after repeating 
this behavior a second time. I had mplayer locked (I use Smart 
which allows you to lock packages from being updated), but there 
was a Livna package available. I unlocked mplayer and installed 
the latest Livna package. After a reboot for other reasons, the 
same CNN file played almost immediately.
