Try this, or as someone else suggested get the mplayer from freshrpms.
But be carefull you can't mix mplayer components from the two repos.

If you uncomment and set noembed=1 in /etc/mplayerplug-in.conf
CNN videos will play in a separate window. I prefer this way
actually.

I got the mplayerplug-in from the Livna repository. If you
installed it from some other repo or from source, your
mplayerplug-in.conf may be in a different location.
