Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.


Here's a link for CCCP, it's a codec pack which should take care of all your needs, I did a quick search to make sure it's still clean of viruses/spyware and it seems it is

CCCP

you may still need haali media splitter to play .mkv files in media player so here's a link and the link to the .mkv site:

Haali - direct download
.mkv site - main site for the matroska format (.mkv)


if all else fails use vlc, it plays anything, if it doesn't play in that then it won't play in anything

I used to use all of these when I used windows and still use vlc now.

How to Watch WMV on MAC Easily


<p><span>WMV, Windows Media Video, is a compressed video file format for several proprietary codecs developed by Microsoft. As we know that there are so many videos with wmv formats, sometimes you download them and then open them , but all you get is a lot of crazy code. Are you looking for an easy to watch wmv videos, especially as a mac user ? This article is about how to play WMV files on Mac so that you can watch WMV on a Mac computer, introduces three most popular ways to play WMV videos and some WMV conversion apps.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Tips: If you want to convert WMV videos, a video converter is needed here. <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/">video converter mac</A> can converts video files such as MPEG1, MPEG2, MP4, 3GP, 3G2, AVI, Mpeg, HD video formats including MKV, TOD, MOD, TS, TP and TRP. and output video formats including MOV, FLV, MP4, AVI, and MPG.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>1. Watch WMV on Mac with VLC Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>VLC is a media player like QuickTime and Windows Media Player. Many view VLC is a good alternative to the these traditional media players because VLC is available for many different operating systems and is an open source software project that is supported by many dedicated programmers across the world.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Until recently, only experimental versions of VLC for Mac OS X could play WMV videos, but no longer. VLC for Mac OS X now supports WMV video. You can download VLC from the VLC media player for Mac OS X download page.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>There are three types of downloads on this page: "Universal Binary", "Intel Package", and "PowerPC Package". The Universal Binary should work on any Mac, the Intel Package is meant for newer Intel-powered Macs, and the PowerPC Package is meant for older Macs that use the PowerPC processor. If you are unsure of whether you've got an Intel Mac or a PowerPC Mac, use the Universal Binary Package.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>Once downloaded, double click on the dmg file, wait for a Finder window to open, and then drag the VLC icon to your "Applications" folder. In addition, VLC media Player supports audio and video formats (MPEG-1, MPEG-2, MPEG-4, DivX, mp3, ogg, ...) as well as DVDs, VCDs, and various streaming protocols.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>2. Watch WMV on Mac with Windows Media Player</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>Windows Media Player is available for Apple Macintosh computers. Microsoft no longer maintains or supports their WMP for Mac software, but they still provide it for you to download. You can download the software at Microsoft's website.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>When you go to the Windows Media Player 9 for Mac download page, you'll be given a choice between a .bin file and a .hqx file. If you have an older Mac, you should download the .hqx file. If you don't, then it doesn't really matter. Just make sure you get the English version.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><b><span>3. Watch WMV on Mac with Flip 4 Mac</SPAN></B><br> <p><span>As mentioned in the above that Microsoft won't upgrade windows media player 9, Microsoft did offer an alternative for Mac users: Windows Media Components for QuickTime Flip4Mac, which is developed by Telestream. With this QuickTime component, you can play WMV and WMA files directly in QuickTime Player and watch streamed WMV videos.</SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN><br> <p><span>If you just want to play WMV files on Mac, you can choose one of the above ways to do it. We recommend VLC player considering its powerful functions. But for converting WMV videos, this video converter mac will be a good choice, it is such an powerful software that it can act as <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/flv-converter-for-mac.html">flv converter for mac</A>, mp3 converter mac, <a href="http://www.macvideoconverter.org/guide/avi-converter-mac.html">avi converter mac</A>, mp4 converter mac, Mac MKV Converter, etc.</SPAN><span></SPAN><br> <p><span> </SPAN>

I cant watch videos on my computer no more why?


do you have video software installed ? Real Player, Jet Audio, Windows Media Player .......etc

make sure you have them and if you're trying to play a move, look at the extension ( Name.WMV) .WMV is for windows media video, which works on windows media player. you have to have the right program to play the video you want depending on the extension.

I have Jet Audio, its a very good program that can play many types of movies. you just go to preferences ---> file type associations ---> then check all and it will play almost any video or audio file you have. without needing to download all other software. One For All

How can i change the format that my "magix Photostory CD & DVD" program burns my pictures/music to a DVD that WILL play on a home DVD player and not just a computer? I have a Windows XP


There are three ways to create a Video CD (VCD) that contains your photo stories:
You can obtain Microsoft Plus! Digital Media Edition and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in Photo Story 2 by going to Play your story or create a video CD of your story and then create a VCD.using the Photo Story 2 Video CD-burning feature.
• You can obtain Microsoft Digital Image Suite 10 or above and view the Photo Story 3-authored WMV file in the Photo Story that comes with the Digital Image Library and save and burn to VCD.
• You can obtain VCD-authoring products that work with Photo Story files, such as MyDVD by Sonic Solutions or InstantCD\DVD by Pinnacle Systems. You can use these software to convert the Windows Media video (WMV) files into files that can be copied to a DVD and played in a DVD player.
Note: VCD and DVD-authoring software is not included with Photo Story 3.
