    Hey guys

    I got a problem. I made a 155mb XP installation but also removed explorer, windows media player etc.

    I cant play .wmv files now unless i use VLC media player.
    but the biggest problem is, when i go to stream websites with Firefox it says 'unknown plugin' :( and i REALLY don't want this s^%& media player back on my pc.
    Any1 know a good alternative? like quicktime/real alternative program?

    hmm, i thought vlc media player had an option to install a plugin for mozilla in the installer, download the latest installer, and reinstall vlc media player with the mozilla plugin option checked in the installer.

    gewoon het vinkje aanklikken dus, :p

    probably the plugin only works for mozilla suite then, and not for firefox.
