    If you're using Safari, try a different browser. Otherwise, I can't really help you. I'm sure somebody can though.

    Macs don't have support for WMV files built in, you'll need a program like Flip4Mac that has browser support.

    It's free.
    I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

    Just wondering. Did you launch Safari and Quicktime? You need to start both applications for it to work. (I believe) I don't use it, but I think this is the way flip4mac works.
