Do you know what kind of video files they are? Are they WMV? DivX?

Edit: It appears to work just fine for me. I have Flip4Mac and Perian installed....so you might try installing Perian as well.

im not really a tech-savvy person, but when I go to www.nba.com, it says "RSS" next to the "watch video" stuff on the right hand side...so i guess its an rss video I don't really know though...

I have Perian and Flip4mac and it runs fine. Download helper (a firefox plugin) comes up with two .asx files and a .ms-asf when I load the site. Good luck.

To the OP... are you using Safari or Firefox? I noted that the page does not render correctly in Safari 2.x (with Perian & F4M it does not play), but in a Firefox 2.x window on the same iMac, it plays and renders fine.
