    big question and someone eles may have more advice than myself.
    I do not have a windows 7 system in front of me but it will depend on what email you are using.
    If you are using a web base email like yahoo or gmail than the windows 7 will take care of it.
    you must have the proper WMV encoder, you can get this free on the internet, search for a Codec pack for WMV files. \just download and install
    Windows media Player than will play it, but you have to link it.
    first go to windows explore
    options on top
    got to file type
    find the extention WMV and assign it to windows media player.
    should work then

    Windows 7? Is that the one that came before Windows 98? Or am I behind the times because I still don't speak 'puter.

    Windows 7 is the newest version of the Microsoft Windows system as they have moved away for the "year" moniker because it took longer than a year or two to come out with an operating system release with the "Vista" release and are going to start by single numbers...7 is the "first" ha-ha...wondering how many operating systems have you bought...probably should start a poll.
