    I just bought a new Macbook 2.0 Ghz Black, this is my first mac in over 10 years i think! i'm having to re-learn alot about plug-ins that worked perfectly on Windows but not so well on OS X. I can't get the Fifa World Cup highlights to work. The website pops up a video window but nothing happens, it just stays blank. I downloaded a flash plug-in for Intel-based Macs, but it still didn't help. Any solutions floating around out there? I'd really like to see the matches i miss!

    Well, if it is a Flash video, then the problem is most lkely with your browser. It is probably a wmv video (windows media player format).

    If the video is a download, then make sure you have the latest version of WMP. If you are trying to stream it in a Browser (Safari, Firefox, Opera) then I suggest downloading Flip4Mac. It's free, and it lets you stream WMP format videos in a browser.
