    WMV player
    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?

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

    yeah, the flip4mac plugin for quicktime works well i heard.

    Windows fanboy gone Mac. Switching as soon as leopard launches. Can't wait for my macbook pro!
