QuickTime uses this plugin to ebable the playback of WMV without the need for Windows Media Player.

I guess M$ will no longer update the Media Player for Mac... So the Flip4Mac will be a necessity sooner or later.

Yes, MS has totally backed off supporting WMP for OSX. Flip4Mac is doing a good job so far. Glad someone picked up the ball that MS dropped!

I'd say it already is - media player for mac would always lag, and playing wmv through your browser would always open the player and try to stream it, slowly - very annoying. Flip4mac is worlds better than media player ever was.

I've been in other mac forums for years, and I kinda gotten in the habit of having sources. Not to mention it makes it easier for the people you're helping if you can link them to something; something reputable, or official.

Only problem is that you can't encode with flip4mac unless you pay, I am a poor college student who can't afford food better then soup.
