    I am trying to watch a demonstration video online, and every time I go to it, it gives me this..... has content of MIME type “application/x-mplayer2”. Because you don’t have a plug-in installed for this MIME type, this content can’t be displayed.

    On Safari, it says that ^ but on Firefox it always prompts me to download flip4mac. I did download flip4mac but it still says "plug-in not installed" and asks me to download the flip4mac everytime i try to go to the page. this is the page i am trying to watch. http://www.projectstreamer.com/users/bwilbers/Immunization_Records/Immunization_Records.html

    any help would be GREATLY appreciated!!

    FWIW, it's a Windows (WMV) file that plays using WMP in Windows. The issue may be a codec that's not supported in Flip. Hang on a second and I'll post the codec info.

    Hmmm...

    If Flip4Mac won't play it, there's a possibility the Perian plug-ins will...

    There's also a possibility mplayer or vlc will play it.

    Although I'm less certain about how to go about getting those guys to play it in your browser without having to go and set them to play all kinds of things in your browser that you don't want them to. If you know the person who hosts these, ask them if they can't give you a direct download or otherwise give you a copy of the videos themselves, and then you could open them in those apps.

    Alternatively, you could use Windows. :eek:

    when we try and watch it through parallels, the video wont play. the video outline show up and the play buttons and stuff, but not the actual video.
