you need to look at winehq for information about compatability (google.com) but wine is NOT a solution to everything. it WILL fail, and it WILL annoy you. why are you trying to use media player? there is next to nothing that you can't play under linux, esp via http://mplayerhq.hu

wine should be a VERY last resort... always look for native applications first.

i've heard of problems with kazaa on wine but read that win media player works with it... i use winex (wine with directx) but don't use it for much other than AIM (im unable to find an aim client i like for linux )
