    The file opened OK in Windows Media Player on my netbook after downloading a codec. I forgot the number.

    I'm not sure which file to download from the VLC websit.

    Latest platform specific packages for 10.5 and later (release 1.0.5)

    32 bits Package for Intel-based Macs (19.1MB)

    Latest Web browser plugins for 10.5 and later (release 1.0.5)

    Web Browser plugin for Intel-based Macs (11.8MB)

    I'm new to Apple and I don't want to download the wrong thing. Do I download the 32 bit package for Intel-based Macs or the Web Browser plug in for Intel-based Macs?

    The web browser plug in is quite cool too, it means you can play any audio file you encounter on the web.

    I downloaded VLC and I got the following message: "No suitable decoder module - VLC does not support the audio or video format "WVP2". Unfortunately there is no way for you to fix this" I guess this file can't be played on my computer. Just on my Windows computer.

    WVP2 is the key piece of info I wish we'd had earlier, would have made this thread a LOT shorter!

    Flip4Mac doesn't support this, in fact nothing on the Mac fully supports it, because it is a "Microsoft PhotoStory" (aka "dumb POS") project file.

    This would be like me sending an iMovie *project file* (not the actual movie) to a PC user. Sigh.

    There *is* a sort-of Mac solution, however: upload the .wmv file to YouTube. It will convert it to MP4 for you. You can then download a copy, and finally delete the thing off YouTube.
