xine and vlc use the ffmpeg packages to decode. MPlayer uses it's own, 
included ffmpeg version. For both we also do have the windows dll's are 
also available: http://packman.links2linux.de/package/w32codec-all

Hm, "xine http://streams.br-online.de/bayern1_1.asx" plays fine. Other 
wma/wmv files I was able to play in the past, also work.

There shouldn't be a difference to older openSUSE versions. Can you give 
as a example (url pleace, no xxx MB file to the mailinglist) file that 
worked in the past and doesn't play now.
