   you need the win32 codecs to make this work though.

  No you don't. The built-in ffmpeg can handle it:

Mplayer pretends it can handle WMA files, however I did not try this 
feature. See multimedia/mplayer, it installs an `mencoder' program you 
might be interested in.

In my experience, mplayer has been able to handle WMA files
... _except_ for those that require Windows Media Player 10 due to
DRM.
(If someone knows how to get mplayer over that obstacle, please
share.)
