In your original post you gave 2 URL's

http://www.cbc.ca/video/#/Shows

and

http://www.radio-canada.ca/emissions/decouverte/2009-2010/archivage.asp

The first link leads to videos that are flash.  However, they are not
directly played by the flash plugin.  There is a wrapper around it
called "v4.1.0.local 2009-09-03 7:59 PM" which appears not compatible
with linux.  I cannot play them and I don't have Omega to determine if
it can.

The second link contains several other links...which was referenced in
Frank Murphy's response...and to which I replied.  Therefore, all of my
comments were based on Frank's response and dealt only with the second
link.  Those links are not being played by a flash player...but by
gecko-mediaplayer.

FWIW, I don't have totem installed on my Fedora system.  And, if you
look you'd find that gecko-mediaplayer is "mplayer" with a new name.
