Watching .wmv files on Intel-Mac

I just recently purchased a intel-mac. I have not been able to watch any .wmv files (probably because I haven't installed any software to do so). I saw someone post that they can watch .wmv files using Windows Media Player 9? I was under the impression that Windows Media Player is not designed for the intel-macs. Is this correct? Are users of Windows Media Player 9 relying on Rosetta to run it?

Media Player 9 does work on an intel Mac through Rosetta. However browser integration does not work. I recently installed the public beta of flip4mac which enables windows Media files to be played in Quicktime which also supports the browser plugin.

Thank you for clearing that up. By the way, how is the beta flip4mac treating you?
