Question Multimedia Capability on the AMD64 with 64Bit OS

I recently built my first AMD64 based machine, and frankly I love it. I have installed Suse 9.2 64bit on the machine. I have read a few places on the net about MPlayer and Xine if they are the 64bit version, are unable to use win32codecs. I had learned that you can successfully install a 32bit version of Firefox 1.0 so that you can use flash and java for your web browser. So down to my question. Has anyone out there successfully installed 32bit MPlayer and Xine on a 64bit Linux distro using source or packages so that the win32codecs are usable on a 64bit Linux OS.
