    I know before we couldnt view wmv video files on droid,
    however I got an email with a wmv attachment, clicked the preview
    and to my surprise it opened and played half way then popped up and said as before video cannot be played error, (but it did play half of it???)
    so i went to gmail in browser and downloaded the attachment
    when it finished downloading i clicked on it it opens with droid media player and plays completely??????
    anyone here about update fixing the file assc problem with viewing wmv files???
    I know before update it wouldnt cause i tried many times, and if they were cool vids i would convert them on pc and transfer to droid but now this is really cool

    Ok,,,,, just checkin things and decided i would put a wmv file from laptop on droid as well as try a quicktime movie file
    the wmv file plays on droid perfectly, however the quicktime played but had no sound...
    this is way cool now the droid plays wmv videos since most common email videos from people i know are that and now i wont have to transfer and convert just to see them

    EDIT.... ok put couple music vids that are wmv files and they wont play
    only difference is on laptop when i check properties they all say WMV (capitiol letters) by file name, they ones that work are all lower case wmv

    Here I found another software which could convert video to andorid, convert between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.).

    I dont think Droid can play .WMV files... I usually use something called android video converter to convert WMV to Droid-friendly format MP4 for watching. It also help me convert other video like AVI, MKV, MP4, MOV, FLV, MPEG even HD video to my Driod ...
