    sorry, a switcher\newbie here..

    what do you use for video and audio in Safari? Can you add Mac versions of Real Player or WMP ?

    Yeah, I've installed both Windows Media Player and RealOne Player on my computer for use with browsers.

    I would also get the safari enhancer to open the debug menu.

    There are like 20 add-ons, check

    Get RealOne, Win Media Player, update Flash, and makes sure you have Shockwave Player installed. You will also probably want to get PDF Browser Plugin since it makes viewing PDF files online similar to that of Windows and Mac OS 9, where you see the PDF file within the browser.

    OK, downloaded all of these... how do I get them to play inside of Safari?

    ex: instaled WMP, but I cannot get it to open inside of site that uses that (ex: msnbc high speed)

    shockwave seems to be working..

    Thusfar, i have not been able to get either Real or WMP to function properly in Safari-- i just don't think the integration is ready yet. I keep a copy of IE around for stuff like that, if i need it...

    i'm hoping very much for a new beta release that helps with these filetypes...

    an interesting FYI, instead of each browser having it's own location for plugins in X (like it was in 9) now there's a folder for all web browser plugins-- makes switching browsers easier...

    Is that the "interner plug-in" folder found in the system folder?

    so. you just drop WMP in there? Or Real Player?

    What do you have in there, all i have is three quicktime files.

    Simply launching the RealOne Player for Mac OS X application will put an alias to the RealOne Player browser plug-in into the Internet Plug-ins folder.

    The Windows Media Player installer should install its browser plug-in, too.

    Safari generally works with the RealOne Player browser plug-in, but the plug-ins were tested with Internet Explorer, before Safari's release.
