    Alas, Windows media Window is not an open-source format, so VirtualDub cannot open it.

    One way you could do is to go to http://www.avisynth.org/, download and install AviSynth.

    Then open up the Window Notepad utility and type the following:

    DirectShowSource("C:\my_movies\movie.wmv")

    save it as "LoadWMV.avs".
    Finally, if you want convert a WMV file, rename the clip you want to convert as "movie.wmv" and put it in "C\my_movies" folder.

    Since you are uaing the AviSynth filter DirectShowSource, you can load the "LoadWMV.avs" file with any encoder (like, for instance, VirtualDub) and do what you want (you can use all VirtualDub filters and, once you finish, saving it to AVI).
