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.
