That wouldn't make much sense, as Windows Media Player on the Mac only plays WMV and ASF files, unlike the Windows version.

You should download Flip2Mac(free) which is a plugin for quicktime that plays WMV files. It works a 1000% times better than WMPlayer which is nothing but a crippled version of the windows version.

And considering MS just ended development of WM on the Mac.

PS - Please don't crosspost. Posting your question in one place is good enough.
