Most everyone responding to the post have wmv's working.  If it is true that 
only windows units will play the files, it is OK with me, but it would seem 
appropriate to include the DMV factor on the download.

I downloaded half dozen movies with the .wmv file type.  None play video or 
sound.  It is a lot of lost download time.  I am going to remove them and stop 
trying to download WMV's.  Thanks for trying to help.
