firefox plugins

Hey all,

I'd like to view the videos at adultswim but they require activeX, the latest version of Flash, and windows media player. So I'm wondering if there's any way to install activeX or WMP for firefox under linux, or if I'm just going to have to install an emulator. Any help would be great.

I'm running Firefox 2.0 on Kubuntu Edgy.

It's not possible to use activeX in Firefox. This is a good thing. It is the main reason Firefox is safer than Internet Explorer.
The flash-9-betas are good though and the mplayer-plugin should work for wmp files if you install the right codecs
