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.

  1. First, download Prism video converter. It's a freeware software to convert multiple kinds of video files. You can click the following link to start the setup.
  2. Install the software. If you want, install the other features also, but for this task just the video converter is needed.
  3. Open Prism video converter. On the upper left corner, you'll see a plus symbol for "add file".
  4. Click on this "add file". Now open the AVI file you want to convert.
  5. On the left bottom corner is written "output format". Choose WMV to convert your file into a WMV file.
  6. Click "browse". Now choose the folder where you want
