How can I play .wmv videos received on my iPhone?

Steph April 15, 2011

I can’t seem to be able to play .wmv files received by email on my iPhone. I tap on the icon file, but it simply enlarges the font. What do I or do not do right? Thanks.

    the iPhone does not support .wmv (Windows Media Video) files natively. You either have to convert these files to mp4 or m4v before you can play them on the iPhone or download a media player app for your iPhone that supports .wmv.

    Try VLC for iPhone.
