    Unhappy WMV - Issues playing back

    Hi all,

    I have a WMV file which plays fine for 2/3.
    After that threshold mplayer/totem will stop playing, while VLC, even if it reports the wrong time duration, will play it back all the video past 2/3 but with corrupted audio (naturally past 2/3 of length).

    What should I do?
    Is there any way to fix a potentially broken stream?
    I tried installing w64codecs plugin but apparently nothing has changed...
    Any idea/suggestion?

    Cheers,

    i can imagine it being some sort of DRM that has broken it.

    Thanks.

    The funny thing is that is does not play (or better it stops at 2/3) on both PS3 and Windows XP with Media Player...

    What other software/programs can I use to view/extract all the frames?

    Cheers,
