    firefox windows media player 10

    Some websites I try to view have video streams that requires the window media player 10 plugin in firefox, is there anything I can do to get around that?

    You can try installing the mplayer plugin for mozilla. You can probably obtain it from apt or yum repositories. Note that windows media files fall under the "grey" legal area, hence you might need to use special repositories to obtain mplayer and the mplayer mozilla plugin via apt or yum. You can probably find instructions on http://www.fedorafaq.org or http://ubuntuguide.org (note that the ubuntu guide is for a previous version, but for the most part things should remain the same...just note that the last release was called "hoary" while the current release is called "breezy&quot.

    I use SuSE 10.0, is there a mplayer plugin for mozilla for this distro? I tried installing the full mplayer and I get a lot of messages saying I don't have this or that library...

    Open up YaST and see if you can find any mention of mplayer mozilla.

    See if any of those are listed in yast, and try one or two to see which one you like.

    It might be called Mplayer, notice the capital M, but since it's not entirely under GPL, it might be listed on third party resources, for it to work under debian you need to add to your /etc/apt/sources.list
    So for SuSE/Ubuntu users there might be an unofficial repository you need to query.
