For some reasons some wmv's don't work on my Fedora 10 either. Neither with
VLC nor with mplayer. Seems to me an encoding issue. One technique might be
to convert wmv's to avi's using mencoder to fix this viewing problem.

However, the very last recorded wmv works pretty nicely with mplayer. This
said, there are cases where video was working on vlc, but not audio, and
reverse situation for mplayer :)

In the case where I can't find any solution, I just switch to windows and
use kml player. It can play almost every codec without any problem.
