Watching VH1.com/yahoo music videos and linux/firefox
Today I went to vh1.com from my mandrake box (10.2 beta 2 uname -r = 2.6.10-1mdk) . I am using the forefox 1.0 browser and am unable to watch their videos. It says I need the windows media 9 plug-in. When I click the link to download it tries to download a .exe. Is there a way to get this to work in mandrake.
I am trying to do away with xp all together on this particular box and can do everything else watch dvd's, burn cds, etc. I would like to see stuff like this work also. yahoo videos do not work either, it says I need netscape 4.7 or 7.1, which is Stupid. firefox 1.0 should be plenty. I have had this with suse but really like mandrake so far an would like to see this work, heck I even got my d-link dwl-g520 pci wireless card to work with mandrake and I couldn't with suse.
