    I am writing this on my first mac! Its the new MBP. Anyway, I cant figure out how to open a wmv file. And ever since I started using my new mac, when I get an email with a wmv attachment, I have to wait until I am in the office where we have PCs and I just open them there. But I am getting tired of doing so. Can someone please help me find a way to view them on the mac?


    Thanks,

    IIRC, Flip4Mac is supposed to provided the .wma codecs for Quicktime player as well...

    Install the Flip4Mac plugin, then you can play WMVs using Quicktime.
