Media library, playing some video and audio, equalizer, skins
What does not
Music make 2 sec lag when start and when I use progress bar. Stop key works normally.
WMV video files play very fast, faster than music
Not all video and audio files can be played. Some music stay after 2 seconds, some music plays, some video can't open with unknown error. I had maked symbolic link to "My Music" directory in "~/.wine/drive_c/" to fix some errors, and sometimes it works!
Multimedia keyboard keys
Media Guide needs native Internet Explorer (use Internet Explorer Solution program)
Program can play not all mp3, avi, wmv and other files
Program needs install more russian fonts
Settings window of program can't be runned.
Battery and Diagramm visualization works only with native quartz and devenum libraries
Some bugs with decoration
Main window always have the window frame (not in skins)
What was not tested
Listen a radio, install new visializations and skins, rip Audio CD to wma.
I install this only besause G-Force visualization needs this. It works. Not need to copy quartz.dll and devenum.dll to ~/.wine/drive_c/windows/system32. I paste this to WMP directory to play Morrowind normally without this. Many error and fixme strings in console.

The easiest way to install WMP9 is with winetricks. http://wiki.winehq.org/winetricks
For mp3 playback to work, you must have 32 bit libmpg123 installed on your system and Wine must have been compiled with mp3 support. Not all distro packages have this. The workaround for lack of mp3 support in a distro package is to use the codec installed by WMP9 itself, l3codeca.acm. To do this, after installing WMP9 with winetricks, create a symlink named winemp3.acm in the wineprefix's /windows/system32 directory, with l3codeca.acm as the target.
Video playback does not work.
