I've just tried this link with the current HEAD (which is after beta 8,
there have been a few minor mms fixes since beta 8), and it seems to work

Exactly what kind of problems do you have? What happens (or not)? If you
could can execute firefox like this:

MOONLIGHT_DEBUG=mms firefox http://misc.omroep.nl/slplayer/  

and attach the result to a mail, I might be able to diagnose it.

I also tried a few links on the main site, but got a "Only available in
Netherlands" error.
