Either your sample is there and I can't find it or it's not there at all. Please provide a direct link so I can test.

See the corresponding FFmpeg/libavformat bug, this will be fixed there, not by us.
WMV in MOV uses a horrible format that basically munches an ASF file into a MOV file, so far nobody is motivated to try and make that mess work.

I don't have read access to the FTP repository to create such a link - upload went OK. Do you want me to upload it to one of my servers?

ah, that's what I get for reading my mail in chronological order

I wasn't able to find an ffmpeg bug for this (searched on various compbinations of asf mov wmv). Do you happen to know the number or the right search terms? I'd like to help test over there.
