How to play WMV files in Helena (Linux Mint 8)


Hi Everyone,

I am not able to play WMV files from Linux Mint 8.

I tried installing VLC, w32codecs but none helped me..

I get this message when tried to play the file:
Code:
No packages with the requested plugins found
The requested plugins are:
video/x-asf-unknown decoder
Any suggestions is appreciated.

I haven't had any problems playing WMV files with MPlayer.

You might also look for a program that will change the format to something you do not have issues with, like MPEG or AVI. There are several programs that will do that (I wish I could help you out with names, but I am most concerned with changing music files to MP3 in Audacity).
