Windows Media Video, or WMV files, is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. In the past, computer users have been known to have difficulties opening these files due to a flaw in Windows Media Player or the WMV file. These issues have since been resolved with the newer versions of Windows Media Player and other similar media players. WMV files should now open and play with ease.

Begin by downloading the latest version of Windows Media Player (see link in Below). http://www.filewin.net/Windows-Media-Player/download/?p=AU-DNM
Windows Media Player is the default player for Windows Media Video files. If you have just purchased a new computer, the computer probably already has the latest version of the program. Right click on the WMV file you want to play. Select "Open With." Several different programs will appear in a small box. Choose "Windows Media Player." Windows Media Player will then open on your computer. Wait for the WMV file to load. When it does, a message may appear in Windows Media Player informing you that the WMV file is missing an extension. Click "Yes" and Windows Media Player will still attempt to load the file. The WMV file should then begin playing in Windows Media Player. Hope this helps.

Cannot play WMV file


This is a type of video that can be played on your computer and portable media players. The most important feature of a WMV file is that its format allows large video files to be compressed, retaining the rich quality of the video. It is a file format developed to store video content in a compressed format, so that movies and other video programs can be viewed on a personal computer. These videos can be watched from the hard drive of your computer, or other media players. To play a WMV file, a set of codecs are required. A codec is a program that can easily read a file, creating video and audio formats from the provided data. WMV files may be played on Microsoft Windows Media Player and other media players as well. The latest version of WMV is WMV10.

Ok. i have these wmv files in my samsung Q1, but everytime i play it, it doesn't play and displays: "not supported format". but aren't samsung Q1 players supposed to play wmv files?


Hi i have researched your product and it should support wmv files so i dont understand why they wont play. I would either take the product back to where you got it, tell them its faulty, get a replacement and try again. Or just convert the wmv files you have to SVI (Mpeg 4) and they should work.
Hope this helps
