Default PT9 Limited Playback of WMV

I have yet to see this issue brought up anywhere else, so I'm hoping it's an isolated problem that can be addressed fairly quickly.

Been doing a fair amount of post production work lately, working primarily with 1 to 3 minute WMV's exported from Adobe Premiere CS5. Yesterday I was given an extended video (about 7 minutes), which Pro Tools refused to play. The video imports normally, Pro Tools encodes the audio perfectly, frames show up in the timeline, but the video window shows "No Movie Present".

I've banged my head against the wall digging through settings, but nothing has changed from when WMV's would play before. I've exported versions using both WMV9 and WVC1, neither of which made any difference. AVI's and MP4's of the same video import and playback normally, however quality suffers from a re-encode. I eventually just created multiple, 3-minute clips...and dropped them in one by one as I mixed. Both of these are extremely inefficient ways to work.

I find it hard to believe that PT9 globally refuses to play WMV's over 3 minutes in length. I've added my system specs below...

Windows 7 Pro 64-Bit, Xeon W3530 @ 2.8GHz, 6 GB Memory, Geforce GTX 460
Pro Tools 9.0.2 w/ Avid Mbox Pro
