From what I can tell from using Google, asf has something to do with Windows media... Like a wma file...

If that's the case, you are correct, you cannot play it. MP3, wav, alf are supported. The iPad is not a Windows computer so not all windows formats are supported. Heck, hardly anything other than Zune supports wma's anymore....

Anyway, welcome to the forum. You might want to give a bit more information with your question....

can't play asf files

On the iPad, you'll have to convert them using a converter program (not iTunes).

On the PC, there are plenty of programs to use including Windows Media Player or (my favorite) KMPlayer.

MacOS, someone else will have to help.

just download Azul Media Player from the AppStore... Then just hold the attachment in your mail program for about 3 seconds, you'll get a popover that says "Open in Azul". You're done. It will launch and play the video.... works on WMV files too....
