That's what Leo suggested, I believe, but Fedora makes me lazy. Things
work usually so well without editing files. Hey, listen to this: after
scrapping Totem and installing Mplayer, I could even watch Radio-Canada's
wmv without a glitch!!!

I was late on one program (decouverte, in case you want to practice your
french :) and watched TV online for part of the afternoon, but I might get
back to editing files later.
