Default Exporting WMV files for Media Player 9

Hi, have a problem with our export settings for Procoder 3.

We are putting out files in .wmv format for users on our coporate intranet to use. Absolutely no problem at all with half the users who are on Windows Media Player 10 or 11...but for those users still using Media Player 9 the files wont play. Keeps coming up with inappropriate codecs.

Can anyone suggest the correct settings we need to export .wmv files using Procoder 3 that WILL play on Media Player 9?

I know that its best that the users upgrade, but we have perhaps 10,000 machines on our intranet and about half of these are still using Version 9. Unfortunately, its not a case of them being able to update themsleves easily - it requires admin rights that our IT bods won't trust to the average user.

Thanks in anticipation guys

Try loading one of the System Profiles for Windows Media Format V8.2. You can do that in the Profile section when you specify the Target settings.

Please note that Windows Media Format 9 does not correspond to Windows Media Player 9 -- the latter doesn't support the former.
