[SATLUG] News Video on Linux

I tried to load up CNN's free news video feeds in Firefox along with
mplayerplug-in, but it gave me an error saying I didn't have the
proper plugin.

Fox News video works perfectly.  Seems that Fox uses Flash whereas CNN
is using wmv files.

I wonder what went into each company's decision to use the formats
they do.  What Linux-friendly news video sites do you all use?

thanks

Sean
