Gstreamer wma

I have FC4 installed and i installed amarok recently. It uses the gstreamer engine but it cant play wma tracks :-( . Please tell me which plugin to install or what to do in order to get wma working with the gstreamer engine in amarok. I dont have xine engine (and lib) installed.
Btw amarok is too good a media player!!!
Callin all the linux gurus out there!!!!!!!!
