Warning: Windows Media Player 11
I just installed Windows Media Player 11. Wish I hadn’t. According to their on-line help, it will play videos with this format:
mms://server/filename (for example, a file with a .wma, .wmv, .asf, or .mp3 extension)
But, based on my own experience, it will not play this particular video:
I have no idea what the problem is, but Microsoft is willing to fix it for a minimum charge of $35. You can probably play it if you haven’t installed Windows Media Player 11. The link is on this page.
UPDATE: Well, I used CCleaner to uninstall Windows Media Player 11, which rolled me back to WMP 10. That doesn’t play it either: same problem. So I guess I may as well upgrade to WMP 11 after all.
