Hey there,

I am trying to play a wmv file with VLC player. I get sound, but no video. Are there any codecs or anything else I need to install to get it do work. I get the following error message:

main: no suitable decoder module for fourcc `WMV3'.
VLC probably does not support this sound or video format.

It is a wmv file that will play on my PC. Any ideas or suggestions? Should I try another player? If so, what do you recommend?

QUOTE Thanks

I would download flip4mac. That is generally the mainstay of apple users wanting to play wmv files. Works very well.
