    Does KDE (or other) have player for .wmv format?

    I've been researching a bit and it seems there may be no KDE program (or Suse 8.0 options) that can be setup to automatically play .wmv media files. I found some info. about playing these and MPEG files at:

    http://abma.x-maru.org/faq/annotated/formats.linux.php

    but the setup is way to much for a newbie such as me. It appears MusicMatch and RealPlayer(?) may be options, but I thought I would run this by the forum in case there are better choices for playing a variety of streaming media file formats.

    Any opinions are welcomed.

    i'm not sure about this, but i think Mplayer can play .wmv files

    installing it can be hard if u don't install from source often, but it comes with installation instructions in the documentation and if u read them and follow them it shouldn't be a problem

    but like i said, i _think_ mplayer can play those files but i'm not sure

    Well .wmv is a Microsoft format so specs are a bit hard to come by - I don't think you are in luck.

    But as Ralinx said, mplayer can play .wmv files, I tried playing some video files in mplayer of that format, but it didn't look pretty...

    mplayer works fine for wmv files, and darn near everything else. Being able to use win32 dlls/codecs is Good.
