On my computer it is a bit different:
There it is called: Windows Media Player Plug-in 10 (compatible; Totem ) (In Firefox) verwenden

verwenden = use

I don't know if it works though. By the way, I am on a German Intrepid 64 bit, updated from Hardy.

You can install the plugin by installing totem-mozilla.

In order to get support for Windows Media you will have to install the win32codecs, see and click the With individual packages button.

Can you help with this problem?
