Yes, there are several browser plugins for online videos like totem-plugin, vlc-plugin, kaffeine-plugin , but gecko-mediaplugin (formerly mplayer-plugin ) is by far the best.
As i said i have no probs in watching even full hd trailers at the us apple page, same goes for several divx video hoster. Only the behavoir is a bid diffrent full hd and 720p vids at apple will open a new player window while divx und sd vids are embeded unless you choose to play them in an new window.
I didnt had to change the user agent or something, but had to check "quicktime emulation" in the settings.
Since i use arch the plugin in the arch repos could be newer but that shouldnt be any problem.
