Omega can't play them either. As I can play Flash videos anywhere in
the world... if the tv broadcaster allows them to go outside the
county and unless a special home made plug-in is requested such as at
ABC.

Do you have any idea can possibly be the use of such a wrapper, except
to prevent Linux from reading the videos?

If tou go to Prefrences Applications, you see gecko-mediaplayer listed
for asf, asx and Windows Media??? I doubt it.

"Gecko Media Player is a browser plugin that uses GNOME MPlayer to
play media in a browser."

But, in the Preferences, Applications options, you sometimes have
mplayer, sometimes Gecko Media Player and sometimes GNOME Media
Player. If this is all the same, it's rather confusing. There's also a
MozPlugger option.
