The ProcessInputError message indicates that the files you are trying
to play are DRM'ed. In other words, you are out of luck. Delete them
and forget about this.

There is an open-source WMV3/WMV9/VC1 decoder in development, but
DRM support isn't being worked on nor will it ever be.

The only solution available at present is to unlock the files on the
Windows machine where they were originally playable.
