    I'm using firefox 2.0 on ubuntu 6.10 and was wondering if there is a way to play embbeded windows media through firefox? I have installed mplayer, but this still won't allow me to view embedded media player movies on websites.

    You can view pretty much everything with "mplayer-plugin". So :
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install mozilla-mplayer
    should do it.
