    Question play WMV on Macs?
    I am on a Intel iMac and I was wondering if there was a program out there that lets you play like video files encoded in .wmv? I don't think there is one out there but maybe I am wrong.

    You could also try Flip4Mac WMV, which lets you run almost, if not all the files Windows Media Player can run (including streamed files on the 'net) on Quicktime.

    VLC doesn't play most wmv files... at least the current nightly build for intel doesn't.
