The file opened OK in Windows Media Player on my netbook after downloading a codec. I forgot the number.

I'm not sure which file to download from the VLC websit.

Latest platform specific packages for 10.5 and later (release 1.0.5)

32 bits Package for Intel-based Macs (19.1MB)

Latest Web browser plugins for 10.5 and later (release 1.0.5)

Web Browser plugin for Intel-based Macs (11.8MB)

I'm new to Apple and I don't want to download the wrong thing. Do I download the 32 bit package for Intel-based Macs or the Web Browser plug in for Intel-based Macs?

Intel package to install VLC on the Mac
The web browser plug in is quite cool too, it means you can play any audio file you encounter on the web.

I downloaded VLC and I got the following message: "No suitable decoder module - VLC does not support the audio or video format "WVP2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this" I guess this file can't be played on my computer. Just on my Windows computer.

WVP2 is the key piece of info I wish we'd had earlier, would have made this thread a LOT shorter!

Flip4Mac doesn't support this, in fact nothing on the Mac fully supports it, because it is a "Microsoft PhotoStory" (aka "dumb POS") project file.

This would be like me sending an iMovie *project file* (not the actual movie) to a PC user. Sigh.

There *is* a sort-of Mac solution, however: upload the .wmv file to YouTube. It will convert it to MP4 for you. You can then download a copy, and finally delete the thing off YouTube.
