    • To search for Windows Media Audio players, tap the Search icon, type wma into the search box, and then tap Search.

    • To search for Windows Media Video players, tap the Search icon, type wmv into the search box, and then tap Search.

  3. From the list of results, choose the app you want to download and install.

  4. Open OneNote on your iPad or iPhone, tap the embedded Windows Media audio or video file that you want to play, and then tap Preview.

  5. Tap the Share button in the top-right corner of the screen, and then select the Windows Media playback app that you installed in the previous steps.
