Best media player for Fedora Linux

I have installed Fedora core 1 on my computer.Now when I surf my browser (mozilla) usually will not player video clips.I download Real Player for Linux and that helped with .rm files.But I would like to see Windows Media Player clips and .asx files.Is there a open source top dog in the Linux media players that will do it all?

MPlayer with win32 codecs should be able to do it
there's also a Mozilla plug-in

I have not had a chance to do the install but I thankyou for the input.I have to give myself some time with the instructions.It looks a little tricky installing the plug-in.
