    Specs:
    MacBook Pro 2.33 ghz, 15 inch, 3gb ram.
    Windows media on the internet
    So I'm running OS 10.4 and anytime there is a video on the internet using windows media player an error screen pops up. I click send and it physically opens my windows media player program on my computer and attempts to stream the video. About 70% of the time, I get some sort of error message. IS there anything I can install that will allow me to just view them online and with a higher success rate?

    The way you described it, I'm not sure if it's some kind of embedded player or something, but if it's a regular WMV, then Flip4Mac will allow Quicktime to play it.

    I have VLC, this is for windows media videos literally embedded within the internet site. I'll try the flip4mac thing though. Sounds promising.
