    Exclamation MPlayer Won't Play wmv files

    I don't know if this is the right area to post but I gotta ask someone for help lol.
    I have MPlayer 1-7 on my wii and it plays avi files fine but it wont' play any wmv files? It says "Interception SD1" anyone have any ideas what that means?

    wmv or Windows Media Video is a proprietary codec created by Microsoft for use with it's Media Player series. I've not come across that error before but I bet it's because Mplayer doesn't support that particular wmv codec. Convert to avi using Virtual Dub and your problem will vanish.

    Exclamation Tried

    I tried what you said, didn't work Virtual Dub doesn't support wmv files plus I've notice the quality of the video goes down pretty badly..

    Maybe VirtualDub only works converting one avi to another, was sure I'd converted wmv with it.

    WinAvi will work, I used to use that one extensively.
