    Hey everyone,

    I dont know if any of you out there have run into this problem but when I visit MTV.com I can't view their video files. They say that because I am running OS X it is not supported by Digital Rights MAnagement made by Windows.

    Does anyone know a way around this?

    Thanks

    Unfortunately, No. Microsoft stopped supporting Windows Media Player for Mac and has never supported the ability for any application to decode its proprietary DRM on the Mac. As consumers we are stuck in the middle of the Microsoft, Apple, Real Player format wars. Please complain to Microsoft and MTV (I already have..athough it won't do much good) or your congressman. The only way around this would be to boot into Windows if you have an Intel Mac...
