This is my first mac, I switched from pc to mac on the 29th of july. I've been trying to watch a lot of movies and what not and i apparently need windows media player. When i download windows media player It's asking me to open it with something. I'm currently here asking what is the appropriate application to open the download with?

any advice would be helpful.

my aim is colbyhewitt if you'd like to message me there?

What you need is Flip4Mac Its a plug in for Quick Time that will enable you to open wmv videos and watch them through Quick Time works like a charm.

Microsoft has a Mac Version of Windows Media Player, but its not all that. Plus they stopped supporting it and it isn't recommended. Give Flip4Mac a shot.
