I just looked at a *.wmv file with Xine, MPlayer, and VLC.  It has been
quite a while since I set these up and I am certain that I probably had
to add an installation of codecs to the mix, probably from the Mplayer
site. In any case all 3 seem to play it.  MPlayer DOES however complain
with a popup dialog box complaining about missing a DLL for DVD
playback, it still played the file.

This was with a file on my drive, not one embedded in an email.
