Is there any way to play these and the S-Mpeg 4 files on the RPi? He says he's got quite a lot of files burnt to disc and it's going to be a major chore if he has to convert them all to another format for the RPi to be able to play them. I don't even know how he'd go about this without worsening the quality either.

The Pi will play MPEG-4 compliant video. From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Windows_Media_Video:
Quote:Microsoft MPEG-4 version 1 MPG4 Video for Windows-based codec. Non-standard MPEG-4 codec incompatible with the later standardized version of MPEG-4 Part 2.
Microsoft MPEG-4 version 2 MP42 VfW-based codec. Non-compliant with finalized MPEG-4 part 2 standard.
Microsoft MPEG-4 version 3 MP43 VfW-based codec. Non-compliant with finalized MPEG-4 part 2 standard. Eventually locked for encoding only with ASF files (build 3688 and earlier could also encode to AVI).

so, no, these are not MPEG-4 compliant and can't be played on the Pi.
handbrake is quite simple to use to convert them.

In future make sure videos are encoded with open standards (H.264 is the obvious choice now) not proprietry variations.
