I have a file that VLC does not open. It mentioned 'wmv3' so i tried media player with no luck. I use
avicodec to check which failed.
I also seen some results saying it's a Quicktime file but somehow encoded in WMV (which sounds like nonsense and the poster said he was guessing).
Here's some random text I see inside the file. Perhaps it will help. Does anyone have an idea what this is?
ftypqt qt moov lmvhd Apple Sound Media Handler :hdlr mhlrvideappl Apple Video Media Handler vmhd 9hdlr frmaWMA2 ASF Pwave dhlralisappl
Anyways I want to know how I can see/play the file. I am on Windows 7.
Heres what gspot said (larger image):
filecommand at hand? Or a hex editor? You should be able to get the FourCC out of that thing. Other than that it seems like there's some QuickTime video stuff, so try to rename it to
.mov(although I have to say I'm guessing too)
