I am using the flashplayer final.

But the only way that I could get picture and sound on Fox News Channel 
was to use the greasemonkey plug-in and script. Ironically, that's 
intended to strip out those annoying ads. What it actually does is to 
get me back my picture, and even freeze the frame at the end of the 
video so that I can select another one of my own choosing, instead of 
having to wait for Fox to select it for me.

CNN is hopeless. Mplayer tries to load three times, and then stops.

Anyone have a greasemokey script for that? Maybe that will solve my problem.
