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