    I am using a program that requires that I use Windows Media Player on my Mac. I have the latest version installed. When I open the audio program, WMP buffers it and starts to play. Unfortunately, there is no sound coming through the system. I get perfect sound when I use iTunes, so it is not a sound system problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Make sure that the volume slide widget is toward the right. If this is the case, then you should test the player to see if it is operating properly. Play the Windows Media Sample.wmv file that comes with the player. If the audio of this video works, then your problem lies with the stuff that you are trying to play.

    Try the venerable repair of permissions, too..... :rolleyes:

    MisterMe's suggestion is good...if the sample WMV works, but yours doesn't, I've found that occasionally some codecs for WMV will "work" in a way that causes sound but no video or video but no sound.... :eek:
