How do I get Windows media stuff to play in Safari? If I click on a WMV link it down loads it to my desk top and then opens media player to play. There is a site with multiple videos on the page and I cannot open them because it says the media player plug in is not there. I have had this working before and can;t seem to figure it out.

There are pay versions that give your more functionality, but the codecs are free

Don't forget to use the new User Reputation System
