Don't know, some thoughts or $.02 worth/

Seems to be Windows Media file, MP4 is the container I think the .3g2 is the 
WM part.

wmplayer=Windows Media player?
Play on Linux is Wine, (POL)
w9ndows Media player probably works with POL and/or wine.

Handbrake claims to transcode any format, I use it on my DVD collection..works 
great.
