I just swithced from PC to Mac and so far I love it...

But, one thing I have is a lot of saved video files and I like to watch videos on the net. I need some sort of program like windows media player or realplayer to watch them and I cannot. I've tried downloading WMP on the internet but it is a .stix file. I've tried downloading the .stix and it does not work.

Can ANYONE please help me out with this??? thanks.

An SITX file a StuffIt X archive (like a ZIP file) that opens with Stuffit Expander.

Also, you might try downloading Media Player 9 directly from Microsoft. They've got it available in HQX format.

Flip4Mac can be found here.

It seems to me, though, that you really need to get your player expanded/unzipped and installed before watching any films. So your first stop ought to be to StuffIt's website, and then move onto selecting a player.

Good luck, and keep us apprised.
