Maybe these sites are unknown to mplayerplug-in upstream developers,
have you tried to contact with them?

I'd prefer mozilla-mplayer because:
- It's the option we have used in the past in LinEx ;-)
- In the past it has worked pretty well with most web sites 
- mozilla-mplayer uses to fix the bugs and addapt to new js launchers
pretty fast
- kaffeine is very kde dependant, what's not a good idea (in terms of
memory and startup time) for other desktop users
- mplayer is, by far, the less resources eater of all the players I've
tested. In low profile machines it uses to render with better quality
and faster than other players.
