Well being a total newbie to Android this is probably a basic question, but ,i need to be able to play WMA files , it appears that there is no native support in Android , probably a licensing issue i guess , so are there any apps that can play WMA files that i can download for the EVO ?

thanks

Dan

The Evo will play WMA files. Sense music player has built-in support for it. Vanilla Android does not.

when i try to play the WMA file it says "unable to play this type of audio file"

these WMA files come from MS Office Communicator via email , they are my work voice mails... maybe they are a different version or something ?

any ideas ?

Not sure to be honest. All of my music is WMA format and the phone plays it fine. My Nexus needed a mod to play them.

What about WM streaming (many radios are streamed using windows media), is there any way of playing them?
