    Using web cams in Safari
    I'm still looking for a way to view web cams in Safari. When I try to use them i get an error that says missing plug in. I can find the plug in for windows but not OS X. Is there no way for me to do this? This is the web site I'm trying to access.

    Your just plain wrong. You have no idea what you talking about.

    That site works just fine for me here using Safari.

    I would suggest doing as bazanders suggests and install Flip4Mac.

    You're not going to watch any windows media files on the web without it.

    I would also suggest you dial it back a bit if you enjoy getting help from folks.
    Those type of comments generally lead to the last assistance you get in that thread.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Your using Safari to view the files. Right? "bazanders safari just plane sucks" I don't think this is a true statement. But I have to dial back my comments.

    I'm not sure what "just plane sucks" even means. I rarely get the chance to use any web browser, never mind Safari, on a plane.

    If you meant "just PLAIN sucks," well you're wrong but hey, if you prefer another browser that's A-OK with me.

    I normally do, but I thought a joke at your expense would lighten the mood.

    Anyway, what I was simply trying to say is that it's irresponsible to say (anything) sucks based solely on one person's experience. I'm sorry Safari has been problematic for you, but that's not the normal experience, that's all I was saying. V6pony gets a ding from me to for using "your" and "you" when he meant "you're" both times.

    See? I'm an equal-opportunity grammar dork.
