Is there a player or xmms plugin that will play DRM (Digital Rights Managment) WMA's?


I've downloaded some songs from the new Napster, but (of course) they have this digital rights managment protection on them. Now I can't play them in Linux . Is there anything that will play them?

I've also heard about some mozilla-napster... what's that all about?
