WMV files not playing

This has happened several times...so I'm not sure if just a setting that needs to be changed.  When someone emails me a .wmv file, it appears to download correctly.  When I attempt to play the file, the normal controls appear at the bottom...but I get no video, only a black screen.  I can hear the audio playing, and it shows the meter below with the time remaining and time elapsed for the video. 


Any help would be appreciated,

Re: WMV files not playing

It's the video codes... you can't play WMV on the Tour.  You'd have to download to PC, convert to Blackberry-friendly format, and reload.
