I had some problems to watch embedded wmv files in chromium.
The gecko-mediaplayer plugin did not work, but complained about not being able to load the windows media plugin, although it was correctly installed in the lib-dirs.
Seems this is a common problem on a lot of *nixes, although I did not find a lot regarding arch.
Solution was to use the totem-plugin instead of gecko-mediaplayer.
I wonder what is the correct place to add this to the wiki. Should I just put a note on the browser plugin page (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Browser_Plugins)?
It's fairly old, but have you tried https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=113548 ?
However https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Browser_Plugins can be a good place indeed, it already has a troubleshooting entry for gecko mediaplayer.
