i there,

I have OS 10.1.2 running on my Mac. I can see Quicktime files, but not files that call for RealPlayer or Windows Media Player.

I have downloaded Windows Media Player a ton of times and it is visible in my applications folder. Still when I click on a file that calls for it it does not work.

Real Networks only makes available for download on their Website the version of RealPlayer that requires OS10.2 or higher. I don't have 10.2 or higher, so does that mean i just can't see .rn files? What to do?

so maybe the question is: what is the optimum setup for viewing video from the internet for those running OS10.1.2, and what are the steps to get it working?

thank you very very much.

Id recommend upgrading to 10.2 and then using mplayer, realplayer and windows media player are mediocre at best.

I picked up on this thread because I'm having problems downloading some video links using Safari as my web browser. I have OS10.2.8 and recent versions of Realplayer and MediaPlayer. When I use IE or Netscape they seem to work fine.

Any suggestions? Does anyone know of a Safari forum? Many thanks,
Allan
