You have to install the ubuntu-restricted-extras package using apt or Synaptic. Just copy and paste sudo apt install ubuntu-restricted-extras. This will also install Adobe Flash for Ubuntu.

These packages can't be included with a fresh Ubuntu install since they are technically "proprietary" and cannot be distributed by any company besides the owner. (Not Canonical)

You can use VLC to play WMV files.

To install it, open a terminal with Ctrl+Alt+T and type:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:videolan/stable-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install vlc
