In my experience, 64-bit mplayer will only play a limited subset of
WMV files, even if you have all the codecs installed. I could be
wrong, but I believe the ones it plays are those for which it has some
native codec instead of using the proprietary DLLs. I keep a 32bit
installation of mplayer in order to play media from those who don't
know any better.
