How do I play drm encrypted wmv files in Ubuntu? If it is possible, how do I do it. I've tried playing it with vlc and MPlayer media player but does not work. I am getting a scrambled picture when I play it through vlc.

Any ideas?

The only way is through Windows Media Player. This leaves you with three options:

  1. Install Windows Media Player 11 on Wine.
  2. Install XP in virtualbox and Windows Media Player 11 on XP.
  3. Dual boot.
