Ok, I'm familiar with several alternatives for playing older .wmv files, but now that this new file branch is out, it seems that mac users are being forced to take notice. So, what can I do if I want to watch one of these newer wmv files, the hd included? Microsoft surely hasn't been so generous as to provide us with an ample player upgrade, or provide us with much needed codecs.

Mplayer and VLC (god bless them) just don't seem to work on these newer wmv's.

Any thoughts, comments, or just microsoft hated is welcomed.
QUOTE Thanks
