I got this going using the mplayer-plugin. It also required grabbing a
bunch of Windows codecs from the mplayer site.
Here is my recipe (may vary depending on the rpms you already have). You
will need the livna repositories in your /etc/yum.repos.d
yum install mplayerplug-in mplayer-skins
.bz2 tar xjvf essential-20050412.tar.bz2
mv * ..
needs a cd .. here
Then point firefox at a wmv file. This also gives you quicktime, which
was what I really wanted.
Many thanks Ben, it worked just fine.
