I have a new Imac with OSX...when I go to MTV.COM and try to watch videos, this comes up:

"The page “MTV.com: Media Player” has content of MIME type “application/x-mplayer2”. Because you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can’t be displayed."

What should I do?

OK, I went to the page. Looks like MTV is carrying over their "suckage factor" from Televison onto the Internet. Looks like Mac users aren't going to be able to view their videos. From their page:

Unfortunately, Microsoft's Windows Media Player Plug-in for Macintosh does not support Windows DRM. If DRM support becomes available for Macintosh, MTV will develop a version of MTV Overdrive that works on a Mac.

Well the ads aren't drm so they should work fine.

It's only encrypted content that won't play.

yeah i knew that. it was my attempt at an editorial commentary on commercialism, not a question that i was actually pondering. But your intention to provide help is greatly admired.

Do you have WMP for Mac? That is all you should need. I don't have any problems watching the Yahoo! new videos.

I have no issues watching videos from CNN, ABCNews, etc. Only MSNBC (go figure) and MTV of course won't because of the DRM.

Even if you have the Mac version of WMP it doesn't support the DRM required to watch videos at MTV's site.
