I am a newbie into the world of linux and I have a 64-bit Asus K55V laptop and I had installed the Ubuntu 12.04 LTS 64-bit version using the WUBI installer.Now, I am trying to play a .wmv file and I went through a gazillion threads on how to rectify the problem.
When I first tried, it gave me an error "Python (v2.7) requires to install plugins to play media files of the following type: video/x-asf-unknown decoder". Please pardon me if I am wrong anywhere. After a lot of research, I downloaded the unrestricted-extras, done with the update command in terminal and even downloaded w64codecs. ( since my machine is 64 bit). Now, it gives me the same error, but it plays the audio. I even added the mediubuntu repo into the sources.list or something like that, but no luck
Also, I downloaded Kplayer, VLC, Mplayer and tried the different combinations. All the players play audio perfectly, but no VIDEO.
Please HELP !!!! I have some real urgency to view these videos and they are all .wmv format.
cheers in advance
