Need help getting 'plugged in'!

I have recently switched to Suse 11 from Deb 4. I am trying to listen to my favorite radio station online and I get an error message that I need a
video/x-ms-asf plugin for Firefox. Does anyone know where I can find such a beast and how to install it please? My first post. TIA

You probably need to install w32codec-all package. I don't think out of the box Suse plays restricted formats. If it's anything like openSuse then you can follow this guide here: Multi-media and Restricted Format Installation Guide 11.0

MPlayer is the beast you want, along with MPlayer plugin.
