wma file playback, is it possible?

I tried to play a wma file, but also if the timeline moves I can't hear the audio. What can I do?

If I play the same file with wmp it works.

Thanks and regards,

Yep, that works. Just checked. This is what I did:

1. Open Visual Studio 2010
2. Create New Project of type SMF Progressive Download Application (available through Player Framework MSI installer). Host Silverlight app in new Website.
3. Open MainPage.xaml and change PlaylistItem: DeliveryMethod="Streaming" MediaSource="http://media.ch9.ms/ch9/13d3/57352968-f89a-4ae4-abb8-9ed200a413d3/Devdays009_ch9.wma"
4. Run project and hear my beautiful voice :p

If it doesn't work, is the volume of the control set? Default is 0.5.

SMF supports everything SL supports.

Note the part about: "24 bit audio will return silence."
