[users] mplayer config problem and mplayerplug-in RPM

Now that I'm getting into RHEL6 a bit more I've noticed that mplayer doesn't 
start for me unless I comment out the

 	flip-hebrew = no

line in /etc/mplayer/mplayer.conf.  Additionally, the mplayerplug-in RPM 
doesn't appear to exist as yet for RHEL6.  Without this, totem takes over 
most of the multimedia plugin duties for things like QuickTime movies and 
therefore means that Apple's trailer site doesn't work (even with the User 
Agent Switcher plugin for Firefox).  At least it doesn't for me.

What am I missing?
