I have a "wmv" file, forgot the original error message but the status at the moment.Oh yes I think I did everything correctly installing "medibuntu".
Current status:-
Both have sound but no video
MPlayer.....Error Opening/initializing the selected video_out(-vo) device
VLC.........VLC does not support the audio or video format "WMV3" etc.

Where do I look, what do I do, point me in the right direction please.....
Cheers Guys
