    Wink WMV on Quicktime?
    Is there a way to play WMV files with Quicktime on a Mac with a free non-trial/demo codec/converter? Thanks in advance. (PS I already tried Flip4Mac)

    if Flip4Mac won't read it, you can try VLC, its not Quicktime, but it can sometimes read it. I've found that most WMV files can't be read on a mac.

    I want Quicktime to do it because I'm using these movie files with iMovie, which only works with Quicktime. The reason why I don't want to use Flip4Mac is because it isn't free and it leaves a big watermark on my converted files.

    Only because it doesn't support Mac anymore. I tried flip4mac, WMP is better and gives you a bigger player.

    Flip4Mac is well worth the reasonable fee asked. Its integration with Quicktime Pro works flawlessly.
