Can't play .wmv stream

but you should have no issue at all for AVIs or MP4 ..

If going with a codec pack I would highly recommend Shark007 codecs.
His releases work perfect under 7, and even has the abilty built in to assign ffdshow as the prefered decoder.
Friends have posted videos from the UK which are in .wmv format. IE tries to play by opening a window but then quit. Basically had the same problem in Google Chrome. I downloaded Sharks codec and saw no difference. Shark responded to a previous post that .wmv is a native codec to WMP and his codec has nothing to do with changing that. I then downloaded the VLC and it got me a little closer. VLC media player downloaded the .wmv file and played video without sound. That's where I am now. I am on a new Acer laptop with I3 m330 processor, Windows 7, x64 machine. Any suggestions anyone?

You probably need this ANTIQUE AUDIO CODEC from microsoft.
This codec is over 15 years old and redundant today.

The people encoding the wmv's should be informed that not many people are using Windows 95 anymore. WMA replaced this acelp audio an entire generation ago.

I deserved that

Shark 007. Thanks for the help. And the application you linked to was just the ticket. Sorry for not staying with my post.

I have another question concerning this codec app which you supplied. It only gives option to "run" or "save" if I am in Internet Explorer. When I clicked the same link in Google Chrome and in Safari, it downloaded but renamed with a different extension - not the "exe". The computer then doesn't know what to do when I click to run the application from the Downloads folder. Do you know if I manually rename to the original "*.exe" should it run?

I simply attached the file, acelp_net.exe to the post. I have no idea how this site, your web browser, or what ever else is invloved, is handling the download of the file.
