    I don't know if this is the forum to ask this. If its not, my apologies in advance.

    Someone gave me a .wmv file but everytime I try to open it in VLC, the msg:
    "To view this movie you need to download MovieXPlayer." then VLC hangs. It then directs me to a page where it says I have to pay $9.95 to download the player. I find this a rip off as there are tons of FREE players out there. It's saved as a wmv file so why are they blocking it that you need to pay $9.95?

    Any input guys? Thanks for the help

    It is a scam and junk software.

    My best suggestion, trash the file, forget it, and move on to something else.

    You'll likely find that even after you give them your credit card info, there is no movie in that file.

    Don't take my word for it, just try googling the name of that player.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
