    Flip4Mac and VLC will only play up Windows Media 9 files. If it's 10 and/or has some sort of DRM you're out of luck.

    EDIT: Somebody please correct me if I'm wrong.

    No need for correction, you're right. Microsoft are very hesitant about letting third party apps play their latest formats. This is understandable for the DRM stuff though.
