mplayers with wmv support

wot media players can I get with good wmv support? I like xmms but cant get wmv support to work

MPlayer is cool but its better for video files not music.

Are there any others?

WMV is always video isn't it (Windows Media Video) ? WMA is their audio format.

MPlayer can play just about all of the varieties, once you have downloaded and installed the codecs. Get the player and codecs from here.
