Sounds like you've not got the right codec, unfortuantly I dont know which codec you would need to get.

Are you sure that its a video file? I've seen people use wmv files for audio.

It could just be the WMV file that's the problem. Have you tested other WMVs?

BTW, uninstall Windows Media Player as fast as possible, as it doesn't work at all.
