    Windows WMV problem?

    Hello all,
    I'm not sure if this is the right place for this but here goes.......
    I purchased a few episodes of Heroes from amazon last night. It installed a player on my machine, that's fine. The videos will play in Media player or the player amazon installed. No problem there. I copied one of the episodes to DVD thinking I could play it on my TV..... wrong. No go.
    It won't play on my wife's PC either. We both have the same version of Windows media player. It will only play on my PC. It's a WMV file so I thought it would play on any machine with Windows.
    Any thoughts?
    Pete

    perhaps you're missing the correct codec needed to view the file

    I had the same problem a while back and fixed it with this:

    Thanks man. I appreciate the help. I assume I need to install this on the computers that will not play the videos?
    Is there any hope for playing them on my home theater DVD player?

    Try using DVDFlick to encode and burn. Also, make sure you are burning it the correct way (vcd, vdvd, etc) and that your dvd player can play dvd-r's or whatever you are burning onto.
