I am a new mac user and owner. When i go to other forums and they have videos attached I cannot view them. i added NLC and quick time player along with flipmac. When I click on it it opens in a new window with a bunch of symbols and such. When i right click it it gives me options to save "linked file" If I do it only opens back up to the page when i try it. My question is how do I get the file to one of these programs I have downloaded that is suppose to play these?

Drag the file into the VLC Play List or Media Library, highlight it then press the play button.

so should I uninstall the vlc or flipmac and re-install them? If so how do you do that?

I surrender and am going back to the PC. After many months of trying to figure things out I am unable to make this work. I also don't know where the files go when you delete them from VLC.
