    I've been trying to download WMP on my ibook because a friend sends me wmp videos. I have it on my emac and it works great.
    When I try to download it onto my ibook, I get a "windows media.sitx"
    And ibook doesn't know what to do with that.
    Where can I get a wmp that will work with my laptop??

    You'll be running Tiger, right? Download Stuffit to open .SITX files. :)

    Gah, MS finally stopped using Stuffit files with the release of MSN Msngr 5, but the old programs are still distributed in those formats. :( But like my pal Jew said, StuffIt will hook you up, Cindy, and you're going to need it any way. :)

    Just thought I would chime in and suggest flip4mac if you haven't heard of it. Its a quicktime plug-in codec that lets you play WMV files in quicktime. It isn't free, but it relieves you of having to use WMP, which is always a good thing. :)
