At present, I usually end up looking through the source, which is tiresome. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Visit some page with an embedded video clip without a player plugin installed. Actual Results: A window pops up informing me that I cannot view the video because I don't have the right plugin installed. Expected Results: The window that tells me I don't have the right plug-in installed should show the URL of the embedded video. Alternatively, and perhaps more usefully, when I right-click on the cyan jigsaw piece that shows where the video ought to be, there should be a pop-up menu with the option to copy the src of the video. The current behaviour is for the same window to pop up again.

Better "default plugin" behavior would be nice (I hate the popup, why isn't the question "inline" if there's room?), I agree. For the meantime, try the bookmarklet I created for you: http://plutor.org/blog/2004/08/16/10.26.56/
