How to play wmv videos on the iPhone?
I was wondering if anyone has figured out how to play wmw videos on the iPhone. I have a bunch of videos that I played on my blackberry but I can't save them and play them on my iPhone. Can anyone help?

WMV/WMA (any WM/Windows Media file really) is proprietary to Microsoft and part of their DRM ecosystem, so unless Apple licenses it (not likely, given Apple seems to prefer non-proprietary MP4/H.264 formats, and has their own DRM solution), or Microsoft makes an iPhone App specifically to play them (possible), you're stuck with converting them.
In general, however, you're likely better off with you video and audio in as cross-platform as possible formats.
