I download a wmv video with firefox and I can read it with gnome mplayer without any problem. But if I try to read it with chromium it says to me that I have a missing plugins. How can I fix this ?

I think it's because Chromium browser do not support this kind of proprietary (wmv is a Microsoft type of data that can be used for audio and video) plugins as Google Chrome do. –  Zignd Dec 11 '12 at 21:59

As stated by Zignd, it's because this is a proprietary file type. I suggest simply converting the file by using media.io.
