    I was trying to watch a Gears of War 2 trailer, but it said that I didn't have the components or something. So I followed the link and downloaded Flip4Mac so I could "play Windows media" with QuickTime. I still can't watch the vids! Can someone link me to a Windows Media download for Mac so that I can watch these glorious vids please?

    Use Flip4Mac for WMV, Perian for tons of others, and VLC is great for everything.

    I downloaded VLC but how does it work? I tried to paste the URL of the video in the thing and press Play, but to no avail.

    Just download Flip4Mac and you can watch it in the browser. I recommend keeping VLC and installing Perian for other file formats.

    Thanks mate. I downloaded Flip4Mac but just playing it regularly won't work. I didn't realize that at the bottom of the vid there was a QuickTime option (duh). Thanks.
