embedded video in firefox

what is the best program to use for embedded video in firefox? i've tried mplayerplug-in, but it doesn't seem to work too well. mozplugger works ok, but it doesn't play WMV.

Mozplugger plays .wmv streams for me. Mozplugger just connects Firefox to other apps and codecs that you have available on your system. Perhaps the problem is with the codecs you have in the Mplayer or Xine?
