codecs missing/broken?

I prefer GOM (http://www.gomlab.com/eng/GMP_download.html) Player

you are right, that is why LabShark has no video in VLC while playing WMV

You sure thats not WMA?

Does your windows media player play WMV?

That is odd though. VLC should work fine without any added codecs.

VLC is great for playing any and all media.. it just falls apart on dvd menus and subtitles.
