  1. Both mplayer and mplayerplug-in are available as standard ebuilds. I suggest that you get the latest version, which may be masked.
          1. become root
          2. emerge sync (to refresh the packages list)
          3. cd /usr/portage/media-video/mplayer
          4. emerge mplayer-....
          5. cd /usr/portage/net-www/mplayerplug-in
          6. emerge mplayerplug-in-....
... is the full name of the ebuild. (You need the full name to override potential package mask.)
  1. Create a link for your mozilla or phoenix plugins directory. For me this is
          1. become root
          2. cd /usr/local/phoenix/plugins
          3. ln -s /usr/lib/nsbrowser/plugins/mplayerplug-in.so mplayerplug-in.so
3. As above, restart your browser and enjoy.
