Hi,

I am trying to view videos from a website but can't due to its DRM even with flip4mac installed..... Same problem with Firefox.... apparently it comes from OSX that can't manage windows DRM...... does anyone have a solution other than using MS Windows ?

Thanks,

Greg

Nope. There's not way to access drm protected wmv files on a Mac AFAIK.

That really sucks ! Steve Jobs should rather address this kind of issue instead of making tv ads against MS....

No, MS is the one with the issue here. It's there Proprietary DRM just like their Proprietary NTFS that MS would not release any code for. That is why it took years to finally write to NTFS drives from Unix and OSX. Remember you can play Apple's DRM protected music and Videos on the PC.

And just exactly how do you suggest Steve Jobs address this issue when Microsoft will not release the details of their DRM to anyone? Steal it and go to court or prison?
