Are you going from a Windows machine to your SuSE one? I am assuming
that all other file transfers work OK? Is it locking down on a specific
type of file or any file over 10M in size?

Either MPlayer or xine can play those files. Be sure that you get all
of the dependancies from the Packman site. Or you will get the same

play wmvs just fine.
