    So i have a bunch of videos formatted to WMV. They play fine on HTC EVO so I was surprised to see that none of them play with honeycomb. Can anyone suggest a good player app?:(:(

    Moboplayer and Rockplayer Lite play almost everything I've thrown at them.

    You say purchased digital copy. Is there any DRM restrictions on it? Microsoft had been using playforsure or whatever. It works fine on Windows because it has the plug in for that DRM but android does not.
