Flip4Mac is used to open most WMV files on OS X. However, it can't handle certain types of protected WMV files.

Thanks for the help. I tried VLC as it was a free download and it let me open those files.
Flip4Mac is a WMV plugin for QuickTime, rather than a separate program. So you get fun features like playing WMV files in Safari, and I think even iTunes.
