I've had this behaviour with encrypted files. For me mplayer (via command line) said that a different format was found. But it wouldn't play them. Maybe xine does give some useful info on the files it plays?

I have had problems playing Windows Media version 9 files, because they actually use a different codec to WMV 8 and below.

When using mplayer, it should give you a line like this:
Selected video codec: [wmv9dmo] vfm:dmo (Windows Media Video 9 DMO)
