error:
No suitable decoder module:
VLC does not support the audio or video format "WMA2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this.

I cannot play wma audio files, this is most probably due to some missing use flag, as I have tried to create a minimalistic version of vlc
here are my use flags for vlc:
media-video/vlc-2.0.5 USE="X alsa dbus gnome libnotify mmx mp3 opengl qt4 sdl sse svg truetype udev xcb -a52 -aac -aalib (-altivec) -atmo (-audioqueue) -avahi -avcodec -avformat -bidi -bluray -cdda -cddb -dc1394 -debug -dirac (-direct2d) -directfb (-directx) (-dshow) -dts -dvb -dvbpsi -dvd (-dxva2) -egl -encode -fbosd -ffmpeg -flac -fluidsynth -fontconfig -gcrypt -gme -gnutls -growl -httpd -ieee1394 (-ios-vout) -jack -kate -kde -libass -libcaca -libproxy -libsamplerate -libtar -libtiger -linsys -lirc -live -lua (-macosx) (-macosx-audio) (-macosx-dialog-provider) (-macosx-eyetv) (-macosx-qtkit) (-macosx-quartztext) (-macosx-vout) -matroska (-media-library) -modplug -mpeg -mtp -musepack -ncurses (-neon) -ogg -omxil -optimisememory -opus -oss -png -portaudio -postproc -projectm -pulseaudio -pvr -rtsp -run-as-root -samba -schroedinger -sdl-image -shine -shout -sid -skins -speex -sqlite -switcher -swscale -taglib -theora -twolame -upnp -v4l -vaapi -vcdx -vlm -vorbis (-waveout) (-wingdi) -wma-fixed -x264 -xml -xosd -xv -zvbi" 0 kB

blakdeath ...

wmv is just a container format, the actual video codec may differ, however, libavcodec (from either ffmpeg or libav) handles many of the standard 'av' codecs, and you have the useflags for avcodec disabled, the IUSE for vlc has '+avcodec +avformat' as these would most often than not be required for normal use.
