flip4mac doesn't open, why? help please.

Hello there. I have this problem, I used to watch .wmv movies in my mac with flip4mac but now it doesn't work. I click in the movie and it doesn't open and a window appears saying: "The movie could not be opened. The application attempted to use an unsupported feature."

I updated Quicktime and flip4mac also, but it still doesn't work. Do I have to download any codecs? or what's happening?

Thank you.

Is it a protected WMV?

Well, if it is protected, you cannot play it - only in Windows.

Where did you download it from?

I tried with several .wmv movies I have and none works. I downloaded them from different torrent sites.

Then they are probably corrupt. Try a legit WMV ... what happens?
