I wanted to watch at work also and only had WMP. I made a symlink
to my /video from my web and did the usual right click to download.
IE changed the file name to mpeg. I just let it go, thinking I would
change it back later. After the file downloaded I just double clicked
on it out of curiosity. Sure enough WMP opened it up and played just fine.
