In case you didn't know, mplayerplug-in 0.80 is also in the ports collection. I experiences the same problems as you, but I managed to make the moves at http://www.apple.com/trailers work. Here is what I did: portupgrade -R mplayerplugin (edit your /usr/local/etc/pkgtools.conf to exclude some ports (e.g. XFree) and define your preferred knobs for mplayer) Do you need a http proxy to access the web? In case you do, there is a problem since the plugin does not use the browsers plugin setting (yet) but simply forks an mplayer process. The good news is, that mplayer respects the http_proxy environment variable, so the following wrapper script made the quicktime movies work for me (I suppose this has something to do with streaming since other movie formats seem to be downloaded by the browser (which knows your proxy) to a temporary file and then passed to mplayer) mv /usr/local/bin/mplayer /usr/local/bin/mplayer.bin create a shell script /usr/local/bin/mplayer #!/bin/sh http_proxy=http://your.proxy:1234 export http_proxy /usr/local/bin/mplayer.bin Regards, Simon
