    I dunno

    I don't know anything about Yahooooooo moooosic but if i were you, I'd try to download: http://www.flip4mac.com/ and see if this work. I have tried for video and it worked great.

    Edit: The rumor is that Microsoft *possibly* stopped making Windows Media Player for mac and told the 3rd party developer to start makin' one. I don't know. That's how IE were dead.

    Oh yeah, that's right I forgot! I did same thing to my mom's intel iMac and it didn't work either. Crap! Sorry...:(

    Updated: Why not iTunes? ;)

    Yahoo's music files are DRM'd and Flip4Mac does not yet support DRM-enabled WMV/WMA files.

    Microsoft has closed Windows Media DRM to Windows platform only, so your choices are rather limited:

    1. Install Windows XP (on Intel Mac) or Virtual PC (on PPC Mac).

    2. Wait for Flip4Mac to support WM DRM (somewhat doubtful, considering what Flip4Mac says.

    3. Get a Windows computer.

    LyFox works under PPC, you can try to see if it will work under rosetta, assuming that Flip4Mac works under rosetta as well. The program basically lets you search Yahoo Music and grab the videos.
