ok well this one is not a true wmv, as you see gspot is telling you that the codecs for this file are not known.

lets choose a file you have viewed alot of times to be sure that first your files will play then we will get to how you got this one that just has noise.

ok grab one of those and put it in gspot and lets get see the screen shot.

btw remember to use the very last link in imageshack not the one before last.

in otherwords use the "direct link to image" link ;)

well this one has the quicktime icon symbol so it used the quicktime codec thing from the program you gave me I guess.
