Hi, I can't seem to find a quality WMV player for Mac. I've tried VLC Player and the WMV player plugin for Quicktime but, the videos always freeze and become pixelated. Is there maybe another player somebody could recommend? Thanks.

Try going here and downloaded the Microsoft Media Player for Mac.

I use the flip4mac pluging for quicktime and have no such problems other than a stoppage while it loads more of the video since I'm only running 1Gb of RAM.

iMac 20"
iPod 5th Gen
iPod Touch 4g

The other poster has the right advise. Flip4Mac is the way to view wmv. http://www.flip4mac.com/wmv_download.htm

These are some other items that I find useful for viewing video:
VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

Perian http://perian.org/

Streamclip http://www.apple.com/downloads/macos...treamclip.html
