Sling have released a Firefox plugin that connects to a Slingbox in the same way that the SlingPlayer should.
There is also an IE plugin available.
The plugin is intended for Windows users who do not have admin access. This is not an issue under Wine so using the true Slingplayer makes more sense.
What does not
What was not tested
Connecting to remote Slingbox.
Not sure what else the plug-in can do. Firefox 26 winetricks -q wmp9 quartz
