Hi Robert!

I'm using Xine to play wmv files. You need to make certain that you have 
the correct codecs installed. I suggest getting them at the following link:


As you can see, it's an rpm package. If you have a Debian based distro, 
you can use alien to convert the package and install it. Once installed, 
xine should be able to play wmv files.
