Hi,

As title mentions, suddenly my wmv's give only audio (no video). Tried it with different players: goodplayer, aceplayer, azul, they give the same result.
No idea what's going on.

Please advise.
J.

Sounds stupid, but shut it completely down and then restart it.  To do this, hold the top Power Button until you see a bar slide down from the top that says slide to Power Off.  Let it power off, wait 10 seconds, then hold that same button for 2 seconds.

Let me know the result.

Hmm this is bad luck
Wmv is hard to play on an ipad or a mac (its kinda windows thing)
But this app might work for you https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/imedia-player/id544635606?mt=8

On more thing:
If the app didnt work i suggest to get a video convertor on your computer and convert the file to mp4 or any other format

Thanks, but another app, really?
Note: the only thing I want to avoid is conversion, I play files remotely from nas.

Will try it, but how can you choose a movie to open with another player? Doesn t give me that option, it opens by default with goodplayer now.
