When i try to open a video on a website it says:

Safari can’t find the Internet plug-in.

This page has content of MIME type “application/x-mplayer2”, but you don’t have a plug-in for this MIME type. This page may have the plug-in for you to download and install:

http://www.microsoft.com/isapi/redir...ia&sba=Plugin&

Which plug-in do i download??

THanks a bunch!

Make sure you have Flip4Mac and Perian installed.

You might need Silverlight for Netflix movies.

After those, I'd be pretty leary of any thing else for watching web content.

I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

Do you have Flip4Mac? Windows Media® Components for QuickTime. The plug-in you refer to is for Windows. F4M handles a lot of Windows media.

As a workaround, you may need to use a different browser, eg. FireFox. Reports suggest that it deals with streaming media better than Safari.
