    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.

    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?
