I got it!! 
http://membres.lycos.fr/sethnakht/FAQ%20MediaPlayerConnectivity.html
Fetch mplayer first and install it and all of the codecs 
http://www.stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html#MPlayer
has ALL of the instructions you need. 

Then goto the lycos site, grab the extension and install it. 
It will take a gleep or two when you first use it to override whatever
demon lies inside that wants you to use totem or Helix (persistent
bastards) it took about two tries, on an mp3 on the net, then the MPC
took over and I have no more problems!! I set everything audio to
mplayer...XMMS just looks at you. Change the XMMX settings to mplayer. 

It is ALL good. It even has a system scan that looks for linux apps, not
just Winders apps. This thing is a peach!! 

I blew off almost an entire weekend on this and I am not happy. I had
other things to do and I've fought this battle before and Won. 

Tilting at Windmills, ever other month, is getting very very old...
