I am on Ubuntu 10.10. I installed everything like win64codecs that is required to play restricted formats and tried everything to play a online wmv. I get this error in movie player:

vide0/x-asf-unknown decoder error.

Any ideas how I can fix this?

Did you try to install smplayer? Other possibility is VLC player, but I prefer Smplayer. :-)

SMPlayer intends to be a complete front-end for MPlayer, from basic features like playing videos, DVDs, and VCDs to more advanced features like support for MPlayer filters and more.
