Cannot play downloaded WMV files

Hello

When I download mms stream, MD saves a file properly, and it may have the proper filesize
but Windows Media Player cannot play it.
I have noticed that in WMP clip info e.g. File - Properties - File (Tab) - Length shows "00:00"
while in embedded player in browser shows, for example, "06:51".
Maybe it is the source of the problem.

I tested it for mms://stream.onet.pl/media.wsx?/sport/200608/68bac88af3.wmv
(from page http://film.onet.pl/zwiastuny/0,1479369,267,1,filmy.html).
Probably all streams from http://wideo.onet.pl behave in such a way.

Robert,

Unfortunately, it seems that we don't have the solution for this problem now.
Some WMV files have been downloaded with this problem. We will try to find the solution.

Thank you!
