Can't access streaming video


Hello!
I have Debian Lenny on an i386 machine.
Working fine, in general.
Windows Manager is ratpoison, browser is Opera.
I want to watch a video stream (russian) archived on www.etvnet.com.

The link is as follows:
mms://wss.mtvl.xc.advection.net/mtvl/_ppm/000/361/068/600.wmv?WMCache=1&WMBitrate=2000000&advc=mtvl&advv=1.204.1&advx=1274479774&advt=c2ii4tQaPH2BI6LycCJ6 DjKDGMkfFt*Qwq2EriubRJ9e5uSV4uvNhxRcHiSxrSdhekJqFrtjTcAvAYXypuWPVpztUMLcp0EGS5lcFPnfqWwS2QDYCvqc!ezI ktn8t9hnpGbCGQAHy2RrSHGNI6g89shLk9lfFTxiCYel*eeVxevhnzz2rPiy76E!ZTz8ihH619!!jeMGk5HwdhJ9iLmUJA%3d%3d &advr=%2f

I'm doing it in Opera. I get an error message telling me that the site is inaccessible. But it works on other machines (using M$).

Help?

Try "sudo apt-get install gecko-mediaplayer", this will install the codecs that you are probably missing.

Lenny replies that it's not available, although it's mentioned as a dependency.

The issue appears to be discussed here: http://forums.debian.net/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=45160

But I'm thinking that, if Debian removed it, they may have replaced it with something else... there's surely a reason, no?

Thoughts?
