Have you installed the w32codecs? I don't recall if wmv is part of them or not, try either xine's home page or packman.links2linux.org for the windows 32 codecs.

Can MPlayer and/or Xine play wmv files in SuSE 9.3? When I try to play a wmv file with MPlayer, I hear only audio and get the following errors:
-----------------SNIP---------------- Requested video codec family [wmv9dmo] (vfm=dmo) not available. Enable it at compilation. Requested video codec family [wmvdmo] (vfm=dmo) not available. Enable it at compilation. Cannot find codec matching selected -vo and video format 0x33564D57. Read DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html! ----------------SNIP------------------
The reason I decided to post this question was that I did read 'DOCS/HTML/en/codecs.html', but I did not see anything about wmv files.
I perused MPlayer's codecs URL, but I did not see anything there either. I tried different '-vo ' (video output) options, but to no avail (which is understandable if the problem is the codec). Trying to play the same file with kaffeine (xine-based), I get similar behavior: the audio plays fine, but no video. What did I do wrong?
I have an nVidia GeForce 440 To Go 64M card (on a Compaq Presario R3000Z-series AMD64-based laptop, which I bought specifically because it
had an nVidia card and was 64-bit) . I compiled MPlayer from source because I could not get the rpms from the apt-get repositories to work right. (Other files, like MPEG, play fine, so I am definitely missing a codec.) If I run './configure --help', I do not see anything referring to the missing codec(s) --or did I miss the obvious?
TIA for any help.
