If you go here..

And download the 'ALL' file (All codecs which is around 12MB's) and extract 
it to the /usr/lib/win32 (Or the README say's /usr/local/lib/win32)
directory, then Xine will play *.wvm files and many other formats. Once you 
have done that it will pretty much play them all.

The README will explain a little more as to where to put these codec files. 
I found that once you have done this Xine works very well. (I know these 
were intended for Mplayer, but they work equally well with Xine)
