    Hi, I've just been sent a wmv by a friend who runs a pc, and when i open it with 'VLC' it puts up an error message that says:

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

    Does anyone have any ideas, ie a wmv to avi converter or something?

    Thanks in advance for your help...

    Did you try the actual Windows Media Player client for the Mac?

    I don't think it's silly at all - after all, Microsoft does call it WINDOWS media player. :) Doesn't make it very obvious that there's a mac version. ;)
