Hi, and sorry for the delay...
Are you sure that w32codecs are installed correctly? (I don't have the
.deb package myself!). Try running the following in a shell and send
the results back please:
mplayer -ac help | grep divxa32.acm
mplayer -identify -frames 1 some_file.wmv
(of course, some_file.wmv would be one of those files you are having
Again, sorry for the delay.
