    I am trying to use my iBook to watch the Olympics at work on CTV.

    The web-page loads on Firefox and Safari but the video does not play.

    Any help would be great, we are hooking it up to a large LCD TV for the remainder of the Olympics here in the office.

    Thanks

    Could be a encoder issue or maybe the site doesn't support Mac. I don't know what CTV is so not sure. You didn't give us much info.

    I just went to the CTV site and noticed that their video uses Silverlight 3. Double-check, but I don't think Silverlight 3 works on non-Intel Macs. If not, then it's a no-go. Sorry.

    I can confirm that Silverlight does NOT work on PPC macs. Found that out during the Beijing games...
