    Welcome to MacForums. Unfortunately, even MicroSoft doesn't support WMP for Mac OS X anymore. They'll tell you to download FlipForMac. So taht is your best bet.

    yeah, and in my opinion, it's far better than Windows Media Player anyway. Loading wmv IN the browser is much better than streaming through the player, which would frequently lag, freeze, or remain buffering for eternity. Should you want to watch the movie again, you have to do it all again.

    Flip4mac allows you to play almost all .wmv's in the nice and friendly Quicktime.
