Did you compile support for streaming media into MPlayer?  I think
you need LIVE to do streaming in MPlayer.  If you don't have
streaming support, then mplayer will download the whole file
before playing, which depending on your connection will
take a while.  The mplayer plugin is still pretty beta IMHO.  I
purchased the crossover plugin and was able to watch it with that.
