On a side note,

shouldn't it be wise to write a warning in the Changelogs about the
VC-1/WMV3/WMV9 support like "warning, not all kind of WMV are actually
supported", or perhaps something more detailed about how to recognise such files
or what are the typical softwares that produces them ?

  • Resolution set to later
  • Status changed from new to closed

May be supported some time in the future.
