    Where can I download a (preferably free) version of Windows Media Player for the Tiger operating system?

    You'll need Stuffit once you've downloaded it to help with decompression too. :)

    Good luck. Still not the quality of QuickTime.

    I'm all ears as to how you would play .wmv video from places like CNN. I found no other way than to install it just for the plugins.

    Piece of trash!

    Windows Media is bad enough for the PC. It totally sucks on Mac.

    I'm no fan of Windows Media Player, but I must say it's much better on the Mac than on the PC. On the PC it's a bloated, annoying program that tries to do way too many things and doesn't do any of them well, not to mention a horrible UI. At least on the Mac it only does one thing, and it does it reasonably well.
