I experimented with setting these flags:
ao=esd enable-qt=1 use-gui=no
and it is still not streaming. The test stream didn't work, and when I go to the site to view a trailer, it just displays a white box with the message:
mplayerplug-in http://(long web address for stream)
Now I can view movies that I download locally, and they look and sound great. For instance, the .avi download at:
goes as expected. I type mplayer followed by the name of the .avi file and it displays a good bit of info in the terminal initially, and then plays the clip. The information that it is telling me might be of some help, so I'll paste it below. I note that it says it can't find the codecs.conf file, but I did use the codecs download, so that doesn't make sense to me. I wonder if it would be good to simply remove all of mplayer and the codecs and start fresh with it (but I don't know how to remove items if I've installed them from source, rather than simply rpm -e).

You apparently don't have the use-gui flag in your mplayerplug-in.conf file (and everything else is commented out). So, the default behavior should take effect, which is "use-gui=no". If you want to make sure the plugin is not attempting to use gmplayer, you can add "use-gui=no" to the mplayerplug-in.conf file - it won't hurt anything. The only other difference my conf file has from yours is to make the plugin use Gnome's esd sound daemon (uncomment and set line to "ao=esd").
You can test to see if mplayer is properly streaming video by entering the following command at the shell prompt (Its the Daredevil trailer :-):
That will confirm that mplayer can handle a QT video stream (as opposed to just playing a local file).
