[MPlayer-users] Quicktime .mov file with WMV and WMA codes

Thanks for your response.

The file in question uses WMV9 and WMA9 (?). I would think the libraries of 
these codecs should be installed on Win XP. So, from what you are saying, 
mplayer should be able to play a .mov file with WMV and WMA codes on Windows 
XP. Correct?

How do I extract audio and video information from a .mov file and save the 
file as AVI?
