Well, 99% of the time it's asked, it's a case of user error.  Post the
command-line you're using to create these files, and I bet I can spot
the problem.

mpeg-ps is just the container, it could be any of a number of
audio/video codecs or settings (1000fps) that WMP can't play.  
And yes, WMP is very stupid.

Please don't top-post in the future.
