    my apologies if this is in the wrong place or if there is already a thread. I have quicktime and flip4mac and when i download wmv files and try to open them Im prompted with a message that says it is not a movie file. Am I a complete idiot and missing something really simple? thanks a bunch

    One of two things are occurring:

    1) You did not install Flip4Mac properly.

    2) The .WMV is corrupted.

    I would download and install Perian (www.perian.org). Works better than Flip4Mac.

    JT, please identify the nature of your question in the topic title. the generic title you used is devoid of meaning - not a good approach! :)

    Well, I see that you took my advice, but it hasn't gotten you any more responses! :(
