    I don't think this can be done unless you define some minimum system specs -- there simply is no such thing as "the average laptop".

    Newer GPUs and even some integrated graphics controllers accelerate the decoding of WMV and even H.264, allowing even a low-end CPU to handle HD media. Other systems may have a beefy CPU, but struggle because all the decoding has to be done on the CPU itself.

    You may want to take advantage of the fact that a WMV file can contain more than one media stream, allowing the system to determine which stream to play. If that's too complicated, offer more than one version of your video.

    Well WMV is less processor intensive than H264....but just to let you know, my home PC is a 3.0Ghz P4 and 1080p WMV files stutter. 720p will be your safe bet (1280x720) I think.
