I'm fairly new as well, but by PPC I think he means power pc, so it would run on an Intel Mac through Rosetta and the performance would not be as good

However, as stated, flip4mac is now in universal binary so will run as it should do .

Question on VLC. Stumbled upon this thread because unable to play .wmv on Dual Intel MacBook pro. Do have VLC. Opens and plays, but no sound. Verified not on MUTE. Critical beeps are audible. Had to force quit as well.

Questions:

1. How do I get sound to work?

2. Why did I have to force quit?

Thank you

flip4mac is free for playback. Pay features are related to the encoding capabilities I believe. Also note that Microsoft DRM videos don't play on a Mac.

I always have to move the volume control to the right on my tower. For some reason VLC has always starts at zero volume for me on that machine. I just did a quick test on my MBP and volume was on.

Normally you shouldn't have to force quit. VLC might take a few moment to quit sometimes.

ppc stands for powerPC, the older processors in Mac, G5 G4 G3 and so on...

I thought that flip4 mac was free, but if it does cost money, i dont know how much, but if your just trying to convert video you have previously saved on your hard drive, then you could use visualhub to convert them, another program that costs money but could be cheaper than flip4mac, but this option will not have any browser or on the fly conversion like flip4mac would.
