Please tell us what distribution you are running and we can either point you to a website or tell you what to do.

Thanks,

My running system is SUSE Linux Enterprise 10

Check YAST (or SMART... or Synaptic... what ever the package manager is now) if you have the gstreamer-plugins (base/good/bad/ugly) available.
I think the enterprise distribution has them packaged, you might need to activate an additional repository though.
After you've installed them you should be able to play pretty much anything. Some Real-Media streams are tricky and require the real-media player. It might be available through the package manager - alternatively you can download the linux version from their homepage.
