TOYOTA will become famous soon enough

TOYOTA is offline
Hello everyone. I recently got my 15" Powerbook, and I am having problems with getting any videos to work. When I try to view some, it says choose Windows Media Player or Real Player. So I downloaded Windows Media Player, so now it is on my desktop. But it continues to say there is no internet plug in when I try to watch videos. When I click on the icon that came onto the desktop it says there is no application to open this program on....?

Thanks for any help in advance.

Download either VLC Media Player or mPlayer

both of these media players will have just about any codec you need.

BTW welcome to the forum!

Ok, great, thanks for the quick reply! Which one of those do you reccomend?
So with those I won't have any problems with "no internet plug-in"?

Thanks again.

I personally use mPlayer. I like the simplistic interface of it.

I downloaded mPlayer, and when I tryed to go watch something, it still says something to the effect of "cannot find Internet plug-in"... then it tells me to go back to the page to download Windows Media Player [which I already have] and still nothing works...?

Any help is appreciated.

I finally got it to work. Thanks for your help. I had to download some application called stuffit or something to that effect. Then used that to open Windows Media Player in. Thanks again.
