OK, I get a little further now.  The video window opens and I hear
less than one second of audio that repeats a couple of seconds later
then the stop button is magically hit.  Trying to play the video at
that point repeats the process.

I didn't have any libtotem_mozilla.* files to remove.

/usr/lib/mozilla-firefox/plugins>ls
mplayerplug-in-gmp.so@   mplayerplug-in-rm.so@   mplayerplug-in-wmp.xpt@
mplayerplug-in-gmp.xpt@  mplayerplug-in-rm.xpt@  mplayerplug-in.xpt@
mplayerplug-in-qt.so@    mplayerplug-in.so@
mplayerplug-in-qt.xpt@   mplayerplug-in-wmp.so@
