wmv files??

Hi everyone,

Can anyone figure out how to open a WMV file?

If you're using Windows, double-click on it?

The newer versions of Windows Media Player should be able to open .WMV files, although you might have to download an additional CODEC .. what happens when you try to open it? do you get any messages/errors ?

Well if you needed a CODEC it should give an error saying so.. it's possible the .WMV file is corrupt/bad.. Have you verified that you are unable to open any WMV files? You might want to try another from a different source.

Also, I open it up in word and it looks like some kind of code????

Yeah.. you wont be able to open it in word.. it would look like gibberish..

Try finding another WMV file from another source to see if you are able to open ANY WMV's or not.. maybe it's just that one file that is bad/corrupt.
