I already thought of it ; WMP for MacOS X is downloadable here:

I wanted to download it, look in mplayer's source to see how win32 dll
interfacing is done and try to do the same for linux/ppc. 
However I'm stuck by a really stupid problem (don't laugh please), I can't
unpack this stupid Stuffit .hqx archive (and got rid of any kind of MacOS
I had).
So if anyone could unpack this .hqx and send me (a link to) a good old
tar.gz, I probably will try to do something about it.
