    I've got an Intel Mac with the latest flip4mac and quicktime. When I try to watch streaming media videos they never play. Instead I always get a white movie object and when I push the play button it says "-19160 error" on its status bar. Anyone knows what that means?

    I'm using an Intel G4 Powermac OSX 10.4.11 with Flip4Mac and Quicktime 7.5 installed.
    This is what I'm getting:
    when I'm trying to watch this video:

    I'd first ask if you could post the link for this video, and we/I can see if it will stream on any other Macs. Secondly, I will say that there *are* plenty of wmv files out there that do not comply with the wmv standard. These content providers create their wmv with non-supported codecs. In this case, the only hope is that these people will decide to reconfigure their content to make them standard wmv compatible.
    Third, I will offer up the utility that the F4M team came up with for streaming video <a href="http://www.flip4mac.com/support_csm_readme.htm">HERE</a>. I don't necessarily think this will work, but it's a good tool to have.

    oops..I missed that link. Anyway, it *does* play fine on my Powerbook, running Tiger and Flip4Mac. I might also suggest to the original poster to try a little test; create a new, Admin enabled, User account. Install F4M there, and try the link again. You can always delete the account later. If it works, it could be a good clue to finding out what's going on.
