What can I say, I cannot thank you enough for your excellent website
I now have mplayer on my Laptop and have been able to play a .wmv file
I haven't been able to get a DVD to work yet (early days) but I will keep trying.
I am also trying to get Mozilla to use mplayer to open movie files (wmv,mpeg,etc).
Any more help will be much appreciated.
It's people like your good self that makes switching to Linux exciting rather than daunting
