    ok this is a weird one

    I know before we couldnt view wmv video files on droid,
    however I got an email with a wmv attachment, clicked the preview
    and to my surprise it opened and played half way then popped up and said as before video cannot be played error, (but it did play half of it???)
    so i went to gmail in browser and downloaded the attachment
    when it finished downloading i clicked on it it opens with droid media player and plays completely??????
    anyone here about update fixing the file assc problem with viewing wmv files???
    I know before update it wouldnt cause i tried many times, and if they were cool vids i would convert them on pc and transfer to droid but now this is really cool

    Ok,,,,, just checkin things and decided i would put a wmv file from laptop on droid as well as try a quicktime movie file
    the wmv file plays on droid perfectly, however the quicktime played but had no sound...
    this is way cool now the droid plays wmv videos since most common email videos from people i know are that and now i wont have to transfer and convert just to see them


    EDIT.... ok put couple music vids that are wmv files and they wont play
    only difference is on laptop when i check properties they all say WMV (capitiol letters) by file name, they ones that work are all lower case wmv

    I had a wmv file in Gmail that worked fine on the PC.. Tried it on the droid and the "preview" option was there, NO "download" option. I clicked on preview. The driod opened a window with "gear animation" saying. "fetching attachment"... Then played the file. I got audio but no video.

    Can anyone play wmv files in gmail on the droid?
