    Has anyone had success getting the videos on Netbroadcaster.com to work on the Mac?
    I have tried on two machines, both running 10.4.3 with WMP 9.0 and cannot get it to work on either. I've tried the latest versions of Safari and Firefox and both give the same error: "Cannot open the file. Verify that the path and filename are correct and try again." This message appears twice and the WMP embedded player is cut off at the top of the window. I confirmed it works on a WinXP machine at work.

    The FAQ at Netbroadcaster says it is Mac compatible, but doesn't offer any help for this kind of problem.

    TIA,
    Rob

    Yep, I have problems viewing too. I think they have done some bad coding in their website, and Safari doesn't render it properly.

    X-Direct Requirement

    It turns out it's X-direct content. They don't know that it doesn't work on Macs. Their website recommends WMP 7 so they don't even seem to be aware of OS-X.

    Sad thing
