Hi Praveen,
Well I would try two things if I where you, the first is to see if you
can play a mpeg file using httpsrc, the second is to try the gnome-vfs
plugin to see if that lets you play the file from the web.

I have sucessfully played mpeg files through the gnome-vfs plugin over
http at least. the httpsrc plugin I haven't used in a long time so I am
not sure about how well it still works.

Also we do not currently have a wmv plugin, but you are using some kind
of hardware demuxer for it?
