I have found this a couple of times too when trying to access; it 
seems to be a faulty set up on the gnashdev server since it comes and goes

Disabling sound doesn't work for video stream sounds (it is a known bug), but 
should mute all other sounds without any problem.

Same problem; libmedia needs attention.

'Movie' is supposed to mean SWF here. Perhaps there could be a better title 
(SWF properties, for instance), though whatever users think, it is fairly 
widely used terminology that a Flash Movie is the SWF and not just the video 
stream. The Movie Properties window is supposed to develop into a much more 
complete source of information about the movie (the task is assigned to me at 
the moment), including about video streams, sprites, characters etc.
