Can my Archos 70 play WMV files? (New user)

Post by jon999 »

I have put a video in WMV format in my videos folder but when I try and play it the screen changes as if it's going to play, but doesn't.

Do I need to download some sort of APP to view WMV files?

Thanks in advance,
Jon

It will play current .wmv files including wmv-hd video, it will not play older codecs. I think wmv9 is the earliest codec it will play, It's highly likely that one of the market apps, such as mx player, will play older codecs

Using MX player for a long time and never had any problems with different video formats or subtitles. Try it.
