On Thursday 08 December 2005 12:03, brouwers roland lx decided we wanted to 
hear the following:
> >   yum install mplayerplug-in mplayer-skins
> >   wget

> >z2
mkdir -p /usr/lib/win32
tar xjvf essential-20050412.tar.bz2 -C /usr/lib/win32 --strip-components=1 
> How can I point firefox to this directory /usr/lib/win32?
you don't.
if you have sucessfully installed mplayer and mplayerplug-in the next time you 
start firefox it should know about various file types and be able to open 
them in the embedded viewer.
restart firefox, type about:plugins into the addressbar, see if the mplayer 
plug in has registered correctly

some kinds of .wmv files you will *not* be able to play - encrypted and 
DRM-saddled files are a no-go.
