basically i cannot access any of the videos on websites such as tvlink.com, or even ones from the bigbrother website, as this message comes up

The page “Channel4 - Player” has content of MIME type “application/x-mplayer2”, but you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type. A plug-in should be available on this page:

is there anything i can do to fix this problem, i want to watch these shows online! any help will be appreciated thankyou!!

Sounds like you need to install Flip4Mac, which is a Quicktime plugin that allows you to play WMV files...a lot of videos on the web are encoded in this format.
