Windows Media Player on Mepis


I just finished downloading Simply Mepis and I was wondering if there was any way to view videos on the internet that require Windows Media Player. If so, what do I need to do in order to be able to view them.

This should help http://mplayerplug-in.sourceforge.net/index.php . Also if you can download the Windows wmv file to your hard disk the actual mplayer app http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html and vlc http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ are able to play wmv files. Soon Real Player will also be able to play these according to this article http://www.osnews.com/story.php?news_id=15507
