    That's not going to happen, just like there is no (AFAIK) QuickTime plug-in for WMP. They are two totally different architectures.

    If you want to play wmv/asf files but don't want to use Microsoft's Windows Media Player, I would suggest getting Video Lan Client (VLC).

    microsoft does offer a very limited functionality WMP for OS X.. it's on their website. but as mentioned, VLC does pretty well too

    Are you talking about Windows Media Player 9 or something that can play WMP 10 files on a mac?

    WMP for mac only plays 9... no such way to play 10 files on a mac yet.. i don't even think VLC does, does it? i refuse to watch WMV files though...
