    Guys ihav some documentary movies in wmv format....
    Problem is tht i hav to connect to net every time i wish to watch the movie...
    since my net connection is available only at night it becomes very hectic for me....
    So is there any alternate method or something by which i can play or convert it for regular watching.....

    You may use Absolute Video Converter. Using this software, you can convert your WMV format file into any other format.

    yup thts the main question....
    But now it started working for me i downloaded the ist bar....
    installed it....
    then ran my adware/ spybot software.. detected tht bar as threat... removed tht thing...
    n even the video is playing n also no threats...
    i have norton 2006 fully updated....
    so there was no harm for me....
    now its on u wheter u shuld try it or not...
    MIND WELL its risky job.......
    But still i cant convert those videos to any other format...
    but i can watch them offline....

    I have compared different converters and I recommend MelodyCan.
    It converts music and movies, and also can remove drm protection. The converter is easy to install and use. :smile:

    I usually use this program Soundtaxi for converting DRM-protected video and audio files to various unprotected video audio file formats, it is very convinient in use, convert in one click and with CD quality and high speed. You can try it, I hope you will like it too.
