More information:

WVP2 Video/Image Codec not supported by gstreamer plugins or ffmpeg. Windows Media Video 9.1 Image V2 is a DMO-based codec. Optimized for encoding video from sequential bitmap images.

There is no codec pack or application that is able to view this type of file.

Example Media: http://d.yimg.com/kq/groups/15523565/1322781786/name/TeaPartyCommercial.wmv

Current result: 
Only audio plays. Visual content is not displayed.

Expected result: 
Plays both audio and visual content in sync, with no delay.

This bug was create to request WVP2 to be supported by gstreamer. If this is not possible due to legal issues or other roadblocks, please define what the issue is with supporting this codec.

This is the freedesktop bugzilla, not the GStreamer bugzilla.

Please go to http://bugzilla.gnome.org and file there.
