    I have a question which has been perplexing and aggravating. I know that on a Mac you cannot play DRM Windows Media Files, even with apps like Flip4Mac WMV player for QuickTime etc. Can I use Virtual PC, run Windows XP and Windows Media Player and play DRM protected video content? (I know, I know...everyone realizes what this is for.) Is it this "easy"...or will it still not work?

    Unfortunately VirtualPC will not be able to play the video well at all. It will be skipping frames and the sound will probably be garbled.
