    I downloaded windows media player so i could watch videos in the Safari or Firefox browser, but no videos play. On firefox, i get the green puzzle piece, and it tells me that i have to download WMP version 9, which i already downloaded. What do i have to do to make this work?

    Ok.
    Get Flip4Mac Quicktime Components

    You'll need to install it buy Getting Info on the Installer app in the utilities folder.
    Check "Launch in Rosetta"
    Do the same for Safari while you're at it.

    Then install the components, reset Safari if it's open and everything should work.

    Good news, but in the mean time how do i force it to run through Rosetta? When i go to Get info, i don't even get the option to tell it to run through Rosetta.
    Nevermind, i just downloaded the beta release. Thanks for your help!

    There's an app in the installers folder literally called "Installer".
