I recently made a project and Rendered it as a Windows Media File straight out of AAE. But when I open the file, the Text is upside down and back to front when I open it with Windows Media Player...BUT if I open it in VLC it is perfect?
Okay, that's just plain weird. However, AE isn't the best thing to use to make Windows Media files.
Try this: Go do Adobe Media Encoder. You can use it to open the AE project in question, and the comp you want, and either pick an AME preset to do the encoding or make one. It ought to work a lot better.
