I have plenty of *.wmv files (webinars recorded by GoToMeeting and downloaded). Now I cannot watch the files anymore since I switched from Windows to Ubuntu. I tried to install the gotomeeting-codecs with Wine and copied the G2M.dll into /usr/lib/codecs. but still does not work. Any ideas how to fix the problem? Thank you in advance.

thanks for answering with the link above. it didn't help for me - i cannot run this gotomeeting coded video-files. but i found another solution that works. installed the gotomeeting-codecs and the "any video converter" on windows in a virtual machine. copied the g2m.dll from gotomeeting folder into the codecs folder from the any video converter installation. now i can drag all my codec-coded videos into the converter program and let it run. it is some work to do, but after all this files can be played on any machine with any player. –  Bruno Steinmann Jan 9 '13 at 2:36

Finally I have solved the problem like that; it was some work to do but it works:

Installed the gotomeeting-codecs and the "any video converter" on windows in a virtual machine. Copied the g2m.dll from gotomeeting folder into the codecs folder from the any video converter installation. Now I can drag all my codec-coded videos into the converter program and let it run. It is some work to do, but after all this files can be played on any machine with any player.
