Announcing Moonshine, the project never formerly known as Pornilus

"This is possible because Microsoft provides the codecs directly to all Moonlight users, regardless of their choice of Linux distribution.

"Very simply, Moonshine:
* Allows an end user to experience Windows Media content on the web.
* Brings Windows Media playback capabilities to a user's desktop for playing local/arbitrarily downloaded content.

"Of course you'll also need Moonlight installed. If you don't have the proper version installed, the Moonshine page will tell you.

"On the Moonshine page, there is an XPI available to install for Firefox. You must have the latest Moonlight installed and Firefox 3.0 or newer. The Firefox shell that provides local media playback however is not part of the XPI. You must build Moonshine from source to have this feature. Packages will soon be available for openSUSE, and hopefully for other distributions soon."
