    Exact same thing has already been gone over extensively in this thread:

    Bottom line: Pretty sure the plugin from the WMP player won't work unless you launch your browser in Rosetta anyway, and even if it did that software is functionally useless. Wait a bit for the Flip4Mac codec to be released in a Universal version that runs on Intel Macs--it's so much better than MS's own player that MS actually dropped development and just paid Flip4Mac to let folks use it for free.

    As for Stuffit, if you typed in the right e-mail address, it should work. Maybe your spam filter ate it?
