Actually, it was neither.  I received an email today with a .wmv file as an 
attachment.  When I tried to open the .wmv file with Kaffeine, I got a 
message that some codecs were missing and did I want to install them.  I 
said "OK" and it did.  Now not only can I run the .wmv video but the DVD 
video also works.  The laptop, which could run the DVD video before can also 
play the .wmv video.

Thanks to everyone for your help.
