When I click on a site that has a link to a .WMV or something that would normally run in WMP or something that can play back video files, nothing opens and I get an error?

Does FC1 not have a built in media player? Must I install one from the web?

Thank you for a push in the right direction.

there are a few video formats you can't play natively in linux. there is a plugin somewhere that let's the browser know to play stuff with mplayer. you can get the crossover office plugin for some things ( demo).

if you use mplayer, you will need to "compile" the win32 codecs into it...................

mplayer rpm's are your easiest way to go. and yum can do that for you, and install other software for you too, later.
