Welcome to Mac Forums.
Download Windows Media player for Mac - Flip4Mac WMV Overview - Telestream and Apple - Downloads - Video - Perian.
I would also not be without VideoLAN - VLC media player - Open Source Multimedia Framework and Player as it plays 99.9% of video formats.

You use either once you have installed those, you use either Quicktime player or VLC to play them. VLC should play them even if you didn't install Flip4Mac or Perian.
