Public bug reported:

Binary package hint: firefox

When I try to play a video file (.wmv), Firefox states I don't have a plugin installed. It then gives me a list of four possible ones, being Xine, Totem, VLC and Mplayer. I've tried installing and reinstalling all but Totem, but I still keep receiving the same message. About:plugins in Firefox indicates I have no plugins installed for Windows Media files.
I'm running Hardy Alpha 4 and Firefox 3.0b3.
