What's the problem? I've got it working in several different distros, in fact 
I've not found a distro I couldn't get it to work in. I did discover 
recently, a change in the way mplayerplug-in installs itself, on at least two 
occasions - perhaps this just has to do with the way it was packaged. If you 
click on a Windows Media file after following the proper procedure for 
installing the codecs and mplayer and mplayerplug-in (I still recommend the 
outline posted way back by Stanton Finley which continues to work well for F7 
http://stanton-finley.net/fedora_core_5_installation_notes.html) and the file 
doesn't play, try right-clicking on the player window and looking at the 
configuration settings. On at least two occasions recently, I found that the 
video and audio output fields weren't filled in - I've found X11 and Alsa to 
generally work, respectively, but your mileage may vary.
