Kaffeine Media Player problem

Hello everyone,
I am a new linux user and i can't seem to get away from my computer since the install. I am running Suse 9.1 Personal and I am having a problem playing .wmv files with Kaffeine Media Player (v0.4.1). It will play all other file types that i have except that one. When i try to play a .wmv file i get the following error:

xine-error: No Demux Plugin

(im sure if i was more familiar with linux that might mean something to me)

Thanks in advance for your help

You need to get the win32codecs and install them to be able to view WMVs

on Linux. Check your repository and install with an rpm (it will save you some headaches)

I downloaded and installed the w32 codecs (using an rpm) for SUSE linux 9.1 but I still get the same error message, what could be my problem? I get this message when I go to the following site:

I can play DVD's and other stuff off of the internet except when I try to play the game on the site I provided using FIrefox web browser
