	I downloaded the file in its entirety and tried it out. Sure
enough, I see the same type of video you describe whether I use the WMV
binary codecs or FFMPEG. However, I also tried it out in WMP (older
version, v6.01.yadda) and it refused to do anything with the file. Have
you ever known this file to be valid? Did it play with some version of
Windows Media Player? Does it play now? Could it have been corrupted
somehow (e.g., FTP transfer in ASCII mode instead of binary)?
