Embedded Windows Media player alternative?

is there a Mandriva LInux application that serves the same purpose as those embedded in webpage Windows Media Players that one finds everywhere on the net?

This is kind of frustrating!

mplayer,xine,kaffeine embedded player for konqueror. Take your pick. The latest version of mplayer from the cvs repositories can play virtually any file. Including the new mac hd trailers. And WMV based files.

i actually use the version of firefox that you dont really "install," so i was a little confused on how to do this.

I ended up finding a plugin where you click the window where the media would be and it brings up a MPlayer/Kaffeine window.

Works well,
Thanks though.
