Best plug in for mozilla to play windows media Streams?

I currently use SuSE 8.1 with Mozilla 1.3 and the RealPlay8 plug in and would like to install a plug in for WMA streams. After a bit of searching around freshmeat and google, I can only find 'remedial'.

Before I go ahead and install, has anyone used it or do you use another plug in?

Do yourself a favor and get the CrossOver Plugin from . Its simple to setup and it takes care of all the dirty work for you. Alternatively, you can install MPlayer and its plugin to let MPlayer handle everything for you. Its much more complicated then the CrossOver Plugin but it does the job if you can get it to work.
