Re: .wmv files
Unless the carrier is blocking the video it should work. It plays on the BB so there is no reason it should not on the PB

Re: .wmv files
thats what i thought. it should play, but it will not. this video plays perfectly on my 9900 but i get this message on my playbook 2.0.

"media error. an error has occured. please try again".

thats why i thought maybe i needed to change a setting somehow.

oops, can't upload a 386kb .wmv file to this site.
