    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 just downloaded perian, but the video still doesn't play!!

    this is the most frustrating thing ever!

    attached is (1) what the window looks like when I try to play the nba.com videos and (2) a partial image of my system preferences

    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.
