Hm... well, I rebuilt the deb from the ubuntu repository
(mplayer-custom), reinstalled the mozilla-mplayer deb (also from
ubuntu), and it stopped hanging in mozilla. It actually played a video
on a web site. I couldn't find any playback controls, but at least it
played. A second video wouldn't play correctly, but it appeared to be
some sort of coding problem... a new codec or something.
