if you ever read that doc/source, you would know that wmp uses some hardware
info, windows serial number and other registry stuff mixed together as key,
so you can't play the file on another windows nor on another os like linux,
even if you have the same player. it makes sure that you can't distrubute
the file (just unplayable shit) you paid for.
