windows media player
 
I want to watch the news clips on CNN.com but I need Windows Media Player. Any way to get around this on Firefox? Is there a linux port?

mplayer with the win32 codecs and the firefox plugin should work

I want to view live video on web sites that say they require Windows Media Player.
What are "win32 codecs", where do you get them, and what do you do with them?

Running simply mepis 3.4-3
