Hello Everyone,

I was trying to play the recently posted macworld expo keynote address 2007 by Steve Jobs (http://events.apple.com.edgesuite.net/j47d52oo/event/) on firefox using the mplayer plugin. I have the latest updates to firefox and mplayer plugins. But it seems that mplayer plugin hangs after the following message (without any video display):



Initiated "audio/MPEG4-GENERIC" RTP subsession on port 33454


Additionally, I looked up the stream url and tried to play it from the command line:



$ gmplayer http://stream.qtv.apple.com/events/jan/j47d52oo/m_8848125_350_ref.mov

Again, mplayer just sits there doing nothing.

is anyone else able to play this on their machines? Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
