I'm trying to compile VLC (or any media player) to be able to play WMV9 and WMV3 files. I realize that linux wasn't "made" to be compatible with these files, but i've seen many cracks along the way. Unfortunately, I've tried almost every site on the internet i can find on the subject, but none of them have properly worked.

So, has anyone gotten a media player to play WMV3 or WMV9 media files? I can get the sound from the files, but the video codecs still alude me......

Thanx in advance.

MPlayer http://www.mplayerhq.hu/design7/news.html
Plays just about every file i have tried. Sometimes glitches on .asf files.
Make sure you get the "essential" codecs and install them first before
you compile mplayer.

Ok, still a relative n00b to this linux thing. i downloaded the tar.bz2 and extracted it, but i can't figure out what to do from there. I tried make and ./configure but neither work.

I got that info from "tuxfiles.com"

Extract the "essentials" into /usr/local/lib/codecs
then you can ./configure, make, make install for MPlayer
