For the first time a web page that doesn't work well in Firefox, works in 
Konqueror.  Konqueror opened it in kmplayer, after first asking if I wanted 
to save or play it.

I assume all you have to do is associate the mms protocol with mplayer or 
kmplayer.  Now figuring out which about:config setting to add or change is 
another matter.
