Have a stream url from a windows media server ie: mms://streamserver.ath.cx/The_Deep_Collection_.wma

Flash won't play this right? has to be wav, or mp3?

With flash mx 2004, you can convert it to a *.flv videoclip, than stream it through Flashcomm server or download it and play it through http connection. Otherwise, you should open it in a popup window...

Outside of that though, yes you are correct, flash will not handle WMA directly.
