Quick note on this--it gets covered from time to time on BSD forums. 
Although this works quite well on most sites (including those with java
if you have it installed, (and, if you use linuxpluginwrapper, it also
installs realplayer which will work as well) there are some sites that
will choke firefox (though not linux-opera).

www.tvguide.com is one, espn another.  (I never said that we were
intellectuals on the forums)  :)
