Re: Sirius radio streaming?
The solution I ended up with is at
Basically, you can install the "mozilla-plugin-vlc" package and it'll
take care of your streams from Firefox/Mozilla/Iceweasel and pipe it
By the way, try out the SIRIUS Player Add-on for Firefox/Iceweasel:

I don't "only" use KDE, I have a lot of other stuff installed (I almost never login directly to gnome, but sometimes I'll use
openbox instead of KDE (especially when my main purpose is to run vmware to get at a virtual machine)). So I'm not at all
surprised that totem is there (it works well for a surprising number of things, but not quite everything it thinks it ought to

I don't know if there's a bug here or not, but I can't figure out how to actually add a new file association with that interface
(modify and delete seem to be the only options available). Probably there's some preferences file (xml?) somewhere that could be
edited directly in my .mozilla/firefox directory to fix this. But it does seem that there ought to be a GUI option for adding a
new file association. In poking around, I see a pluginreg.dat file that looks like it's probably the ticket, but at the top
there's a warning not to edit it, as it's a generated file. Anyone got any clues on this?

Yeah, I installed kmplayer, but konqueror won't even get the www.sirius.com homepage to load properly (perhaps because of flash?).

Yeah, thanks very much for the suggestions. I'm still a little baffled about how much of a grip totem seems to have on my media
files. In the KDE control center I've modified the file associations so that mplayer is at the top of the list of applications
for opening .asx files, and yet iceweasel still continues to try to use totem.
