    Hi,

    I have been having my mbp for a while already. My brother recently send me a link to a live stream video, but I wasn't able to go in to watch. However, he was able to watch it on his PC. I wondered if anyone have experience that? and what can I do?

    I am planning to build a home theater PC by using the Mac Mini, I am mainly going to be using it on stream video and BT. Will I be restricted to browse any website, to download and open movie/song files, or to watch live stream video? Please advice.

    Depends on how the stream is created. Some implementations only work on Windows or only work on Mac.

    If you haven't already, try installing Flip4Mac and seeing if that helps.

    Plus try Microsoft's Silverlight to see if that will help. Don't worry, it is much more harmless than the Flash Player.
