    Internet Video Plug-Ins
    I have several plug-ins that I have downloaded and can view most videos on the internet. However, there are some I can still not view. I am trying to watch videos on diynetwork.com and it will not work. I was reading and I installed flip4mac and the WMV plugins. However I still cant view the video. Any suggestions?? Are there any other essentials plugins for viewing videos on the internet??

    You will need to install Flash player for the videos at diynetwork and should also install Perian.

    bob, I installed both flash player (which I believe I already had) and Perian. I still can't view the actually video. I can watch the advertisement but it doesn't open the actual video which makes me believe I have all necessary programs. Would this be an issue with the website? Also, is there a plugin for Perian??

    The videos I am trying to view are wmv files which suggests that I need flip4mac and the internet plugins which I have all downloaded in my internet plugins file in my library. The videos that are this format do not play but the videos that are flash files play fine. Any helpful ideas anyone??

    Provide us with a link for the videos that do not play. We can only shoot in the dark without it.

    Yes, Flip4Mac should also be installed if you do not have it already.
