I would like to know if WMV files are a standard in blu-ray players (I know that PS3 can play wmv).
Will I be able to play WMV files (windows media video 9, wmv3), resolution 320x24, windows media audio V2?
Do all WMV files work in blue-ray players?

wmv is native to windows,and my ps3 has never played a wmv file
Some Bluray players may playback WMV files, but it is not part of the spec, so there is no obligation to do so. The PS3 is capable of playing back many formats that standalone bluray players will not play, so it is not a fair basis for comparison.
Assuming that most bluray players will be attached to at least 720p resolution screens, 320 x 240 is going to look far more horrible that it does normally.
On blu-ray.com I found this, what does it mean, isn't it the same wmv?
What video codecs will Blu-ray support?
MPEG-2 - enhanced for HD, also used for playback of DVDs and HDTV recordings.
MPEG-4 AVC - part of the MPEG-4 standard also known as H.264 (High Profile and Main Profile).
SMPTE VC-1 - standard based on Microsoft's Windows Media Video (WMV) technology.
Please note that this simply means that all Blu-ray players and recorders will have to support playback of these video codecs, it will still be up to the movie studios to decide which video codec(s) they use for their releases.
After I read the wikipedia article it looks like WMV is a standard
Had someone actually tried to play videos with windows media video 9 codec?
