    When I attempt to download a .wmv file, it appears to download (as evidenced in download manager) but then stalls forever and never finishes the job. I can download other media files without problem. I have updated WMP. Im on G4 PB 10.4.3. Thanks for any advice you can offer.

    Have you tried restoring permissions?

    Updating to 10.4.5? (use software update - always a good idea to update the OS)

    WMV Downloading Issues

    Thanks for the replies. No the wmvs are from various sites.
    I will try updating OS and checking permissions.

    Also, if the problem is with the downloading then maybe try a different browser. :)

    wmv downloading issues

    Yes. I'll update Firefox as well. Apparently that might be the problem. I can view when using Safari.

    issues downloading .wmv files

    When I download .wmv files, from email they convert and open as plain text instead of as a video. I do have my preferences set to recognize all extensions, but something is happening from email to download. Anyone got any suggestions for fixing this problem?
