Looking for embedded media players for Konqueror or Firefox


I like to play streaming Internet radio and one of the downsides of switching from Windows to Linux is that Microsoft does not make a Windows Media Player for Linux. Can anybody tell me where I can download an alternative and how to install it? If not, can somebody tell me where I can find a program that will play streaming Windows media? Thank you!

I use Realplayer and the MPlayer plugin. Works for most things you are likely to encounter.

I'm using gxine with the MPlayer codecs, which also works fine.
