Jerry, here I just use those commands with urpmi like I did with rpm. In other 
words:

urpmi --force --nodeps filename

IIRC.

If not, just use rpm --force --nodeps filename. It will still work, as far 
as I know.

Your not doing something wrong.. the conflict is apparently coded into
the mplayer and mozplugger rpms.  Usually this is done because they
share a filename... but not content.  It's possible you could download
the smaller of the two src rpms. Then edit the spec file for it and
install that way.  I've got mplayer on my box and I'm not missing
mozplugger myself... but that's just me.

The conflict comes from the fact that both the default setups for
mozplugger and mplayerplugin control the various video/* mime-types.

Regardless, I can download either of the two rpms and install it via
rpm --nodeps rpm and everything is all cool.

I'm curious as to why --allow-force/nodeps isn't being passed to rpm
by urpmi.

It's my understanding that when a Conflicts parameter is set in the rpm
spec file it overides the force / nodeps.  Doing this you could
theoretically do a conflicts between say KDE and Gnome and you would
only be able to install one.  I'll have to check out MaximumRPM to
verify my info is current but AFAIK I am.
