    Have you checked out this? It has played every .WMV I've ever thrown at it.

    Try trashing the preferences file for WMP also. Reinstallign doesn't get rid if that. Its in Users/User/Library/Preferences/Windows Media Player Prefs

    Same here. It even plays some that Windows Media Player doesn't like :)

    I cannot get it to play the CNN news links. Everything else works just fine.
