Try MPlayerX Version 1.0.17, better support for WMV than VLC (MMS1 is ok for me).

Thanks. Really appreciate your help. – itsaboutcode Oct 8 '12 at 11:20

According to this discussion, you may be able to play MSS1-encoded movies with MPlayer (Windows only). If you can wait a little while longer, VLC should gain the ability to play them in version 2.1. With VLC 2.0.3, I can at least hear the soundtrack (Codec ACELP (Sipro)).
