You would either have to rewrite the core-file
typo3/sysext/cms/tbl_ttcontent.php (or like that)
In the TCA you have a field
'media' => array(
'allowed' => 'exe,png,bla,blub,add_yours_here',
or remove this line and add:
'disallowed' => 'php,php3,php4,php5,cgi,sh'
(just for security reason so no editor uploads his own scripts)
Or you could write your own little extension (Do so by using the kickstarter -
configure nothing except "General" - choose "Backend" as type ... doesn't really
matter what you choose as type).
Then create a new "ext_tables.php" file in the new extension directory and put
the following code in it:
if (!defined ('TYPO3_MODE')) die ('Access denied.');
$TCA['tt_content']['columns']['media']['config']['allowed'] .= ',wmv';
take care to not have any leading or trailing newline after the <? delimiters.
