Are there any good video plugins to play windows media stream. Please don't say totem as it's no good. I have to scroll so many times to erase the black screen.
Thanks.

VLC player is excellent, but the plugin isn't.

I recommend gecko-mediaplayer. See the http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=766683
