    I am using Windows Media Player 10 and I'm trying to play a Windows Media
    ..wmv file. I keep getting a message that the file contains an extension
    that does not match the file format. What can I do to get this file to play?

    That would indicate that it's probably not an actual WMV file. Where did
    you get the file from? Is it a trustable source?

    (speaking for myself and doing this in my free time)
    See http://www.zachd.com/pss/pss.html for some helpful WMP info.
