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 . Also if you can download the Windows wmv file to your hard disk the actual mplayer app and vlc are able to play wmv files. Soon Real Player will also be able to play these according to this article
