Thanks giulio, I would love to, but it never gets that far. Firefox, Safari, Camino, they all behave the same way. They freeze before the page is even loaded. I have tested that QuickTime will play MPGs. I also have MPlayer loaded, and it will do the same thing.
Perhaps what I need to do is change the action the browser takes when it encounters the .mpg file type. I see that for Firefox, in Preferences->Content->File Types->Manage you can see a list of file types and the application to open them with. However, there does not appear to be a way to add more entries to the list.
I am thinking that if I could add .MPG to the list, and then tell it to open them in an external application (QuickTime or MPlayer) perhaps this would work.
So, does anyone know how to add to the list of file type actions in Firefox?
