    Wonder if anyone can help me out.....I have just received a training cd for a job I am starting.....watched one of the videos, which is on cd, on a regular laptop running on windows at the office....had to watch the second video and they let me borrow the cd to watch at home. Well all I can do is watch the cd with no sound. It is a WMV file and I have flip4mac and quicktime running just fine. Any suggestions?

    Try Perian http://perian.org/

    F4M is usually all I need, but occasionally there are weird audio codecs, or visa versa.

    PS: I *don't* advise WMP for Mac. It hasn't been supported by Microsoft for years and I've actually seen it cause conflicts.

    Try using the real Windows Media Player for Mac or else VLC.

    WM Player 9 OS X: http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/mac/mp9/default.aspx

    Thanks for the replies...just tried the link for WM9 and that didn't either. Wonder if its the disc itself which I don't think would be the problem since it played on my friends laptop just fine the other day but he had a regular laptop running windows vista. No clue...
