I am trying to open some wmv files through firefox (opening in my gmail). When trying to open, the only selection I have is Banshee. When I download onto desktop, I can open it using mplayer.
I would like to open them right from the gmail.
Is this specific to .wmv?
I mean, if it was mp3 could you do what you want?

I have been able to open other file extensions with the right app.
Not with wmv.
I’ll try this myself, I might not finish tonight. I’ll report back:)
Setting are adjusted here in kde. Gnome I have no idea, but right click a .wma in your sys and properties then the spanner icon - should let you set/adjust

@Heeter: when you try to play a downloaded wmv file directly with mplayer, does it work then? If not, install the extra codecs from the mplayer website under /usr/lib/codecs/ This worked for me in 11.1.
try installing alternate plugins like VLC

This is not a codec issue
When I download onto desktop, I can open it using mplayer.
Still never know, everything is worth a shot
