    streaming with Windows Media Player
    Since I've had my Mac, I cannot stream videos on the net that require Windows Media Player and a box comes up requiring me to install the windows media player plugin even though it's installed. What should I do?

    Make sure you have the Flip4Mac plugin and not Windows Media Player for Mac (it's no longer supported). If that still doesn't work, you might not be able to play it.

    Not all WMV files will work on a Mac.

    So is the WMV with the little green circle the wrong thing?

    No... that's the right program. Make sure you're up-to-date with it.

    In a related subject, I listen to sports on local radio feeds from flipwmv and quicktime. Is there any way to make the program stream the broadcast without ending the bar at the bottom and restarting from a few minutes earlier. It's really pretty annoying.
