I have it installed. It is used for... Flash video!

If all your system is 32 bit, I believe you. Mine worked fine with all
64 bit. But i installed Flash 32 bit because of security concerns. I
don't believe the 64 bit version is patched and I don't like having to
check all the time because it's not installed by yum.

Here, the slosest math for asf and asx would b epalin mplayer.
Otherwise, it's MozPlugger.

For Windows media, the closest match would be GNOME MPlayer. Is this
the same as selection gecko? I don't have any gecko option available
for Windows Media.

If it's all 32 bit, that's probably why. Do you use Mplayer or Totem?
Omega uses Totem, I use Mplayer, which is recommenced by Radio-Canada.
Mplayer used to work better. Maybe this has changed.

BUT, though I might find a solution, all this is completely
ridiculous. In the US, Microsoft is under the legislator's eye and
I've been playing non-stop about 10 videos on... MS-NBC, which uses
Flash-Player!!!!

Here, in Canada, we're a banana republic. Harper is most probably
financed by Microsoft. Sometimes, you don't change the settings at all
and the videos stop playing. After Christmas, I'll see if there is
anything to do with the opposition parties.

At the CBC, you can't even play Flash, videos!

Hey, that's quite a feat! And no settings are involved in this case.
