    Unfortunately I just found some video files that I can't get to play on my iMac on any player (tried QT, Real, WMP, MPlayer and VLC). This is the message VLC gave me:
    main: no suitable decoder module for fourcc `WMV3'.
    VLC probably does not support this sound or video format.

    I did a quick search and came up with this thread...looks like wvm3 is a no-go on the Mac. Arrrgh.

    But I thought I might as well still check if anyone knows of some easy way to view these files. Thanks! I love my Mac, but I sure wish there was full compatibility...
