VLC is a mighty media player that can play almost all video files. However, people unavoidably would run into playback problem when playing specific files. In this article, we will discuss how to deal with VLC WMV issue and play WMV files on VLC no hiccups.
Can VLC play WMV? Theoretically, this media player can deal with WMV files as the official website claims – play most codecs with no codec packs needed including WMV. But in practice, there still are some cases that people may fail to play WMV files in VLC media player. Firstly, specific WMV files downloaded from the Internet may come with DRM protection. When you import these WMV files into VLC, there will be an error message telling you that it doesn’t support the format and there is no fix.
