mpeg plugin

I went to a page that had a movie on it. It said that I need a Winblows Media player plug-in or some such crap. So I went to the M$ site and low and behold, nothing for LInux. Is there a substitue for this? Or do I have to switch to Windows to watch movies?

Why would Microsoft have anything for Linux ?

Goto and install mplayer to watch movies with.

The remark about M$ not having anything for Linux was kind of a joke. Will mplayer work for 'enbedded' videos?

I found this link the other day. I haven't bothered working on installing it yet, but it looks like it's worth a shot.
