Unhappy [Q] NS4G not playing WMV files that an EVO does?

I received an email containing a WMV file. I tried to open it using my NS4G and get the error message that it is not supported. My father has an EVO 4G and he can open the exact same email and get the WMV to play fine. What am I missing here? We tested this on numerous emails. I have Rockplayer and many other players on the phone and none of them seem to work. Anyone else having this issue?

edit: I'm running 2.3.5 and am not rooted.

Well what app is he opening them with? The Evo probably has a video driver that the Nexus does not.
HTC Touch (Sprint, Android OS) -> Palm Pre -> HTC Hero -> HTC EVO -> Google Nexus S 4G -> Google Galaxy Nexus LTE -> HTC One -> Galaxy Nexus (again) / iPhone 5 -> Red HTC One -> Moto X

probably the EVO has the WMV playback feature and AFAIK, AOSP doesn't support such file format.

Try arcMedia. Plays everything I throw at it.
