    The link plays fine on my MBP. It appears to be a quicktime movie.

    Have you tried the trailer section at Apple.com, that should be quicktime too. Same problem?

    That video link from Apple's website doesn't play for me either. Does anyone have an idea what my computer's problem is?
    Thanks,
    Craig

    This is usually due to a conflict between VLC and Flip4Mac...I assume you have both installed. Go to <your hard drive>/Library/Internet Plug-Ins. Drag "VLC plugin.plugin" to your Desktop, restart Safari, and see if the video works then.

    The OP is only having problems with Quictime movies (it appears). Not WMA or any other format.
    So would removing the plugin really help?

    It worked for me when I had the same problem. :D

    Edit: There is a Quicktime plugin in the same folder that some people have suggested should solve the problem, but other people have reported that removing it doesn't work. My issue was definitely with Quicktime (couldn't even see the Apple Guy/PC Guy ads when they were on the main Apple page), but it was the VLC plugin that did the trick.

    Thanks Mister WildCowboy, that worked! Super cool. All is right with the universe again.
