I believe MPlayer is supposed to be able to play .wmp files by default unless you need a codec or something.

I can't get Mplayer to work in the first place, I get the following error:- error opening/initializing the selected video_out (-vo) device

Any possible suggestions?

I've seen a thread with the same error. Use the LQ search tool and type "Mplayer" I'm sure you'll get an answer from previous threads.
