How to Play these type of file?


I 've try to use some varous programs, but i still can't play the .wma, .wmv files! Although those programs said it 's supported. I 've used: Totem, Mplayer, Xine.

How to fix these problems? Thanks!

Actually, if you are running Mandrake, the *safest* way to get the win32codec is to set up your urpmi mirrors to include a PLF source. Then just use urpmi or RPMDrake to fetch and install them .

urmpi can connect to the net if that's where it believes it can get a file from, and in this instance, it would be on the "penguin liberation front" website, which maintains third party mandrake rpms, like the one i listed above.
