I'm trying to watch some stuff on AtomFilms.com, and the only options for some of these videos are Windows Media Player or RealPlayer.

I already have the latest version of WMP (the one with OfficeX), but I can't figure out how to make it work with Internet Explorer.

Anyone figure this one out?

Thanks.

If you're using IE, you can copy the link to the stream to the clipboard. Open up WMP, and go to 'open URL' (i think it's called that, or something similar). Paste the link, hit return, and you should be in business.

britboy,

I've tried that one. Unfortuneately, the link is written in Javascript or something and WMP doesn't understand it. It's something like this " Javascript play(film) " or something.

I guess I'll just break down and install RealPlayer.

Thanks for the help.
