Hello,

Either xine or mplayer will do the trick, but you'll need to install the win32 codecs as well (which will also cover wma / wmv formats, and a host of others). i'd try mplayer first, it can be slightly easier to get going with the codecs - but i prefer xine myself - dvd playback seems rather better than mplayer..

Hello,

Yes, I was able to view the content using the mplayer mozilla plugin.. the video did take quite a while to load though!
