[HowTo] Playing wmv files in Ubuntu

I had many wmv files but I wasn’t able to play them.
Ubuntu by default doesn’t support wmv files due to legal reasons. You can, however, make them play.

In terminal, type:
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-restricted-extras

Or, you can go to synaptic package manager and install ubuntu-restricted-extras.

After installation, you will be able to play wmv files.

Cheers!
