    I was just wondering whether there are any other programs that would play wmv files, or if QuickTime is my only option? I really just need something that would allow my to cut the footage into shorter segments, but with quicktime I would need to upgrade to pro. I would first like to know if any cheaper or perhaps free alternatives exist.

    Thanks

    I tried it, but it still doesn't play the file. Do you know something about this program? I don't know if I downloaded the right version: the OS package or platform sepecific one? the info for my mac:processor 2.16 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo, if this helps any.

    Get a serial for Quicktime Pro...

    And I don't mean by going to thepiratebay.org and searching for quicktime pro.... I mean go to quicktime.com and purchase it legally.

    It's Apple... at least you know your money is going towards solid design work and ingenuity.

    Besides it will be well worth the money.
