Isn't WMV just a container format (like OGG/AVI/etc)? If so, it depends
on the codec used. I've had some work on 64-bit xine/mplayer, and some
only on 32-bit (since they use binary windows DLLs). Obviously if the
codec is closed-source and only available as a 32-bit DLL it won't work
in 64-bit land.
I'm sure you can create a WMA/Theora/Vorbis file just as you can
probably create an OGG/Sorenson file - the former would probably work
fine on amd64, and the latter probably would be spotty. It isn't the
container that matters as much as the codec...
