Playing WMV Files in PDA

  Narayan Adhikari 19:45 27 May 2007

Hi there,

I have XDA IIi runing Windows Mobile 2003. When I play Windows Media Video (*.wmv) files in this device (WM Player), I only get to hear audio without any video displayed except a black screen. I can very well play this video in my PC. This is a CBT Nuggets Training Video.

Any suggestions how do I play these in my device? Do I need other specific media player software or the video should be encoded in different size/format (which I guess is cumbersome and time consutimg)?

Your suggestions will be highly appreciated!

Ton's suggested some varieties of softwares for converting these files to other formats and vice versa.
But is there any particular media player which plays varieties for formats in ppc? This would take away lots of time and pain of converting!

Hi Rdave13
I downloaed and installed the TCPMP as advised by you. But when I tried to play the aforesaid video, it gave me the error "Player: Video Codec (Windows Media Video 9 Screen) not supported by the player!
Any clue?
