I've found kmplayer+konquerer to best way of playing embedded media
on websites. It can be switched between a xine and mplayer backends but
consistently performs better than either the gxine or mplayer plugins
for firefox. And by better, I mean it often works well on sites where
I can't see anything on firefox.  

On the other when I double-click on a movie file, ordinary mplayer
comes up - KDE is very configurable.
