Thanks.  Never heard of vlc.  Will give it a try.

Mplayer will also handle almost all windows media files, assuming the appropriate codecs are installed.  If it chokes on the asx file, just open it with a text editor and play the enclosed file url directly.  I just tried the free version of In The Dark (remix), and it works fine. (With mplayer 1.0pre3-3.2.3, and every codec from the sourceforge site installed.)

I've heard that xine will play them also, but never tried it.
