That particular error appears because the program could not open the chosen video file. Does the original file actually play on a Mac in another player?

no, because im wirelessly connected to my pc. all my videos are shared in a folder between my mac and pc.
because the files were so large when i imported them into my pc, i compressed them using windows movie maker and saving the whole video in "best quality for playback on my computer". (this was long before videowrap). doing this compressed them nicely without suffering major quality loss. therefore, the were turned into WMV (before, they were AVI).
but now, those compressed files aren't able to be played on my mac. so im asking is there anything i can do in order to have those videos played on my mac?

Install Windows Media Player on your Mac. Or download the conversion software from Flip4Mac
, which allows them to be played by Quicktime.

Nope, they are both free.

I have a similar issue. Im running Windows Vista and it just won't do WMV. Is this just a copyright protection thing, or is it something else?
