    Hey guys I just bought an iMac today and I went to eBaumsWorld.com to watch some funny videos, but when I clicked a video to play it said that it could not be played cause' Safari couldn't find the plugin or something like that. How will I be able to watch these videos on eBaumsWorld?

    Most of the movies that are on eBaum's world are WMV. That means you need Flip4Mac (as a mac version of windows media player is no longer availble).

    I'm not sure if it has the plugin for Safari (one would think it would), as I use Firefox.

    Bare in mind though, that the Flip4Mac plugin is a little buggy on some websites. I've seen it do things such as the time line slider doesn't move, pause and play buttons don't work, and sometimes videos won't load at all. But I just went to ebaums world and played a couple of videos and they seem to play fine.
