    You need to use a Plug In named "Flip4Mac".
    Download and install by following the instructions and you will be able to view .wmv through Quicktime.
    You can find it at this link:
    Windows Media player for Mac - Flip4Mac WMV Overview - Telestream.
    The good news is that it is free.

    You need flip for mac to view wmv files, a free download

    Try downloading and installing Perian and Flip4Mac, Perian extends a host of movie codecs for QuickTime, while Flip4Mac adds support for Windows media.
