windows media on mac

One thing I’ve had slight annoyance with has been trying to play Windows Media format files on Emma’s iBook. I downloaded Windows Media Player 9 for Mac a few days ago, but it didn’t seem to “fit in” to the whole thing the way that QuickTime does. So by coincidence I just saw on MacOSXHints the Flip4Mac plugin for QuickTime, which allows you to play wmv files within QuickTime. It’s a free download and seems to work very well indeed – nice quality playback too.

On another note, this is one of the funniest things I’ve seen in some time.
