How Do You Play Videos From Email Attachments?


New member
Feb 27, 2011
New to iOS (as of about a week or so ago). I came from Android and pretty much had that figured out. But I can't for the life of me figure out how to play videos from an email. I'm assuming I need some kind of app, but I can't find one that works.

Here's the issue: I received an email with a .wmv attachment. I downloaded it and the only options that came up were play it with a few apps that were not compatible (those apps being .PDF Reader Lite, Evernote, and Dropbox).

Can someone point me in the right direction as to what app I need? I don't mind if I have to spend a couple bucks, just want to get this working. Thanks!
