    Remember that WMP is a) an orphaned product b) PPC only, so it'll run only in Rosetta on your MBP. Have you tried flip4mac first? It's universal and currently supported.

    WMP for Mac is a really poorly made app....

    You should install Flip4Mac

    It works better for playing .wmv and it will allow you to play them in Quicktime.

    And I'm pretty sure there is an Intel version and it's free.

    I wouldn't even install the regular Windows Media Player, it's that bad.

    The default installation includes both the Quicktime add-on and the Web plug-in. You can customize it to not include the Web plug-in.

    As far as the .bin file if anyone else needs to know, StuffIt Expander should be able to decompress it.

    Edit: I guess I was wrong. I could play this video in Safari, but not in FireFox with Flip4Mac...

    I recently installed F4M on my iMac and used it to watch WMV videos on CNN.com in Safari. Didn't try FireFox.

    Yes, Flip4Mac is now Universal. It just came out a few days ago. Flip4Mac
