    Droid won't play wmv files. Convert them to mp4 format. I use DVD Catalyst.

    Converting is fine if you do it on your PC but what if someone sends you a WMV clip in an e-mail? You're hosed.

    It's a minor issue but since WMV is by far the most popular format for e-mail video clips you would think some one would make an app for that.

    Yxflash is the app I use. You have to save the file and then open it with the yxflash app, you can't just play it from whatever email though.. fortunately the droid does multitasking

    Thanks for the heads-up. I installed it just a minute ago. It said something about a paid version, but only the free version showed up for me. do you know anything about that?

    I'm going to give it a try, but what about when the WMV comes in with an email and you're only given the option to "Preview" and nothing to save attachment?
