Reading these files relies on copyright codecs from Microsoft : most desktop
distros have a way to obtain these simply and you can then use mplayer or VLC
to extract the audio or video in the format you want.
I don't know if there is a way of installing the codecs to rockbox - I don't
believe I've heard of it being done.
