I'm looking forward to a public real release of the intel builds of VLC. The nightly builds work fine however.

two ways to make this work
and btw.. on a MBP runing XP.. works great (at work have to use XP apps)
WMVs will run in safari if you run safari through rosetta only (in preferences in safari)
MS will not be releasing a new player in universal i heard
they will eventually release the patch to play then in quicktime for intel
but as of today.. the only way to do it is to switch safari to run throuh rosetta... try it... for me it was only slightly noticably slower

this is from the aple site... this is generic for any app and seems plenty clear to me... however... if you want more specific instructions you'l find them here:

OK, I checked the Rosetta box and I don't think it's working yet. I tried to view a video from CNN and it said I didn'th ave the right meida player plug-in. I tried to download it and after it started I got an error that said the Flip4mac Intel version wasn't available yet. Any further suggestions.

Can you be really specific on how to switch safari to run through rosetta. i went to preferences in safari and can't find anywhere to make such a switch. I admit, i'm pretty inarticulate with this stuff ... but I'd sure appreciate some help. I want to listen to Stephanie Miller online and can't find a way to do it on this amazingly awesome computer. Thanks.
