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.
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.
Mine works fine, so one thing to check is to see if the wmv files are corrupted. Or, alternatively, maybe you are playing files that have no video
Audio: MP3, WMA, WMAPro, WMAlossless, Secure WMA, Audible, OGG (tracks will only be recognized in File and Folder (MSC) mode) Video: MPEG-4, WMV
You may encounter playback issues if the file is corrupt or is not really of the file type indicated by the extension. More information about this player, including useful downloads, can be found at InsigniaProducts.com.
Have had same happen. Try clicking right and choosing open with....and choose windows Media player for list. Don't know why this is the part that works for me. double clicking the file has never worked for me. I get the wmp with the same error but when I select the wmp and let IT open the file....it works....I think it is magic and a stubborn way to do this but it works
Unlike most devices the Philips 3020 will only play videos that are converted using the software that came with it and it will only open wmv files. So these are the steps that you need to do to successfully to play video on the 3020:
1) convert video into wmv format using any wmv converter (unless it is already in wmv format). I use WinAVI video converter and it works perfectly.
The Sony NWZ range can only play WMV (windows media video) files. All
movies you download through iTunes are .Mov (quicktime) files so these
are not compatible. There are some convertors that can translate
between .mov and wmv but for movies you have downloaded through iTunes,
this will not be possible I'm afraid because of the copy protection
they have built in.
To transfer wmv files onto your walkman
don't use iTunes but use the Windows Explorer itself. Just drag the
files on to the Video folder of your device.
