How to play wmv files


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.

You can install Leawo Free MP4 Converter, when you install it, it will ask you to install a codec package, after you finish it. you can convert your video to MP4 format easily, or just watch your MKV video with Windows Media Player.

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

http://www.videolan.org/vlc/download-windows.html

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

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
